WTA about regular rear suspension SL300

Hello
I just bough a used 2010 SL300. It has regular spring and shock suspension.

Anyone notice the different gap between the tire and fender for the front and rear side? I like how the front gap look.

Any easy input/job on how to balance the gap? Perhaps there is any different size for spring rubber?

Thanks in advance

Just bump up the rear tire sidewall size if you want less gap perhaps
