Rubbing noise 11 WRX

Hi guys I've bought a 11 wrx with 17k miles on it it has aftermarket wheels which are 18s the tire size on the wheels is 245/40/18 Dunlap tires. The problem is that I not only get tremendous amount of road noise (tire noise) but also when I was taking a sharp right turn I heard rubbing sound coming from my rear left wheel also when I aggressively shift from 1st to 2nd I hear a very loud rub noise coming from the back. What might be causing the issue? Could it be just the tires going bad maybe clearance issue? I've read about bend start bars I hope that's not it however I still have bumper to bumper warranty with the car.

Is that some bad autocorrect?

You running a stock suspension setup? Those should fit if so...

You check your end links in the back? One could be broken and that would def cause it to rub being slightly larger than OE

The dealer tried to sell me a car that was not inspected what happened was the inside of the wheel was rubbing against the shock haha I took it back and had quite a fight with the dealer and then talked to BBB I'm preordering a 2013 wrx white hatch and its going to be here on the 16th
