Stock size tires? Spacers? Previous accident? Wheel well liners look good and secured? Pics would help.

That should not happen. I've seen something similar when the subframe was not centered on another make. They were not rubbing, but the front subframe was certainly tweaked about 4 mm to the passenger side. I was installing spacers and that's how I noticed.

My 21" wheels scrape against the wheel well liners at full lock. The 19s don't.

which tires do you have on it? Whats weird is the turbines on my 2015 also rubbed, but a different set of turbines on my 2018 does not, both had different tires, so i wonder if the sizing is a smidge different depending on brand
