    Are you touching in the front or the back? You can't miss the screw you need to remove, it's right on the edge of the wheel arch and looks far more raised than the rest.

    I removed a screw at the weekend, but it was in the middle at the top of the arch. Is this the right one?

    Yeah, that's the one, by "edge" I meant right against the outside of the arch

    As N8 says, with that size and offset, you are going to struggle not to rub with 235's...you need to run 225's and then you won't have any issues, and they aren't much of a stretch...loads of the guys on here run them with no issues.

    I got a 225 on a 9.5 inch rim on the back, so I'm sure you'll be fine on a 8.5 inch rim dude

    I had 225/35 on 8.5 ET44 at the front, ET48 at the rear with no rubbing. You don't get any side-wall protection, so wheels kerb easily, but no rubbing.
