19" rubbing

My right rear rubs ever so slightly when I hit dips in the road or turning left with people in the car. There is no tire damage. Looks like it hits just enough to scrape the tire dressing off. If I lower the car with progressive rate springs will it rub more?

Most likely it will rub a little bit, but remember the further down you go, the more your rear will camber in...

That makes sense (camber). I was thinking about a smaller tire on the rear 265/30 down to 245/35.

I had the same set up on my Maxima. F 235/35-19x8.5 and 245/35-19x9.5.

Can you please explain what offset means. does it mean the distance between the centre of the rim to the disc it attaches to?.

Also can i have a staggered setup with 17inch rims? All I have to do is buy a wider type for the back? I have non AMG standard wheel.
