New rims+ coilovers =rubbing...any suggestions?

I recently installed my coilovers and its rubbing a lot from the rear tires when I have 1 + passenger in the car, ex (go over a plaza pavement or go underground between p1 and p2)

Here are the specs of the setup:

2000 540i
ST coilovers lowered all the way (5 threads left from the bottom)
Rondells 21- 18x10 et 18
Tires are 265/35/18 pirellis

Rear bottom end suspensions are stock (control arms and sway bars)

Here are pictures of the car before and after lowering it and the gap I have between the tires/ fenders

Is the tires setup ok for the car or should I go thinner?
Will rolling the fenders be enuff to get rid of the rubbing even with 2 passengers in the back?

Thank u
