I have this on my car and due to a slightly worn spring on one side, they rub at rear of fender opening when braking hard / hard cornering etc. .I'm not entirely happy as the offset makes then "stick-out" more than than I like. In fact I'm thinking of selling them as I now have to replace all springs to get them not to rub. See my profile for a picture.
FYI I think, I have found an acceptable solution to my tire-rubbing situation. I showed it to our body shop manager and he said that the simplest thing to do is to unbolt the bottom of the fender and put in a Â½ â€œ spacer. He said they had done this in the past on W124â€™s successfully, and that it hardly shows. In the meantime the occasional rub has worn through the plastic lower moulding and now makes less contact. Anyway itâ€™s less costly than changing springs - as well since caster is slightly out of spec he said new springs might not sufficiently correct the situation anyway.
