Tire Rub with passenger

Hi guys I have a ford focus 2016 with 18" after market rims and 20mm spacers. I rolled the fenders and have no problem with rubbing (unless I turn and go through a dip or bump) when I'm by myself or with a front passenger, but when I have someone in the back the tires rub on every bump. The tires I have are 215/45/18. I have no trouble when people are in the front seat unless I'm turning but that's rare. Everytimr anyone is in the back though it rubs and I'm not sure what I should do. I thought of getting new stiffer springs like God speed, but all of them lower the car so I don't see this being a good idea. I'm not sure though what are your guys opinions?

Roll your fenders, get smaller spacers, or lighter friends.

Do you think going from 20mm wheel spacers to 15mm would help?

Deleting the spacers altogether would do wonders........Why the spacers for? Wrong offset wheels?

I got rims that were a different bolt pattern. So they go from 5x108 to 5x114.3. I ordered some 15mm ones to replace it and ima see how it goes
