If it's on the inside you may need a set of these:

Alignment. How much camber are you running on the driver side? How much camber are you running on the passenger side?

How do the ride heights compare? With the car on a level surface, compare the distance from the center of the wheel straight up to the fender lip.

I’ll check the ride height when I get home from work btw how would I go about fixing that if that’s what it is which I know it’s defentialy sitting lower on the passenger rear then the driver rear

I've never heard of the spacers you're running. Can you somehow adjust the ride height with them like you can with most coilovers?

If you have the stock shocks, they maybe failing.

I rolled my fenders for the rear with 275/35r19. But definitely check the alignment first.

I have the Mighty Mouse spacers and h&r springs and also I measured and it’s 13 1/4 on the driver side rear and right at 13 on passenger rear so it’s off a 1/4 inch in alignment

Take a good look to see if anything is sticking out from inside the fender that could be rubbing and cutting your tire. Might have to roll the lip. Height variation could just be a slight difference in the springs.
