Assume it is only rubbing in the back?

Verify the offset of the wheel and determine if taking off the spacers will address the problem. If so - bye bye spacers....

There should be markings on the inside of the wheel to tell if they are BMW or replicas, also the offest of them is marked there too. I have an aftermarket set where I run spacers in the front but not the rear.

I suggest getting your alignment done first, if the rubbing continues, delete the spacers - assuming the tires rub the fender and not the inner spring.

When you remove the spacers, stick your head inside & look at where the rear bumper connects to the fender. That's where mine rubbed the most as you can see from these pics. Up to you to start cutting & grinding or just remove spacers.

My setup:
Eibach springs > alignment set for even tire wear > PZERO 295/30/20 > 20x11 offset 25 > rim is roughly 1mm - 2mm from the string
