Never have had anyone in the back seats. Only weight ever in the back has been 4 un-mounted tires (so about 100lbs).

Rubbed a hole in the passenger side rear felt. Drivers side no evidence of contact.

Is that a rub or a tear?

It kind of looks like something got kicked up between the wheel and the felt but I'm just looking at a picture.

Its a rub (that obviously resulted in the tear) prior to taking the picture I had reached in to manipulate the felt to get a better picture w/out needing to remove my wheel.

That should not be doing that even at hiway speeds.. best get a warranty claim going .. Looked at mine and they are about a inch or so away and has me wondering about ice and crud build up in winter ... will keep a eye out for that ..

I had noticed and posted about a flat spot on the driver's side liner after installing 205/45R17 tires. It hasn't gotten any worse, but I'm not going to keep these tires on for long. Keep us posted on the outcome.

I just had the wheels off and checked the liners on both sides.

No rubs, no tears.

I've had four people + luggage in the car for a short trip, three-wheeled it in an autocross, a 1,000+ mile road trip, blast up and down curvy mountain roads and hit more potholes that I would like, 6,700 miles.

Any way, there must be something different with your car or something got stuck in there.

I still have the stock tires and with the Eibach springs is considerably lower.
I push it fairly hard through the canyons and have no issues at all with rubbing.

You may have a bad spring.
