Default 4/6 rubbing issue questions

I just installed my 4/6 mcgaughys lowering kit over the weekend and I love the stance but I have gone through some troubles. I have search other posts etc and didnt totally answer my questions. First the back rubbed and I took care of that problem with some trimming and rolling, now the front rubs on even small dips going slow, im pretty sure my stock tire size is a little to big, (275 55 20) and my alignment is off due to the drop etc.... I also trimmed the front fenders as well and it did help some, and mainly does it on the driver side but could be mainly hitting the well not the fenders not im hoping. I bought some 22x10 gunmetal srt wheels with some 285 40 22 tires (31.0 OD) and im hoping with the smaller tire and alignment it will solve my rubbing. Does anyone have this drop and tire size or anyone with some experience who has gone through this. Here is one pic of it but a crappy cell pic with the stock wheels.

Your issue is the current tire, the 285/40-22 will be close. 265/40-22 clears no prob, but is a stretch on a 10" wheel. Plan of a little creative clearancing when you get the wheels on...nothing more than you've done....but you may need a little more of teh same.
Post pics when you're done.
