That may be caused by an offset for after market wheels.

Your offset is out of whack. You need to run about 35 to 45 mm.

Of course there are others. However, +1 on the roll-your-fenders.

Also if it is not a constant scraping, but rather an intermittent sound, then there is a possibility that your rear wheels are out of alignment; a very uncommon problem since the rear wheels are typically fixed; there are rare occasions that the rear wheels may be out of alignment, usually caused by a previous accident.

Its the offset you should be at 30-40 the wheels you have may be oem but they are for a 5 or 7 series or maybe a newer m3 either way your gonna have problems no matter what unless you 4x4 the rear end sell the wheels and get something that fits you will be much happier. Then you can lower your car instead of raise it. Which may just look a little better. GL
