No rubbing between the bodies in the trunk or between the tire and wrinkle?

<< I'm running 225/60/15 BFG Comp T/A VR4 on my stock suspension (130k
miles). I have newer Bilstein HDs all around and I have not had any rubbing
yet. I don't have any wrinkles in the fender wells though. I've had a lot of
weight in the rear with no problems. Trunk fully loaded and back seat full
enough that I didn't have room for a case of beer that I saw on sale. I also
drive a lot of gravel/dirt roads here in Montana with lots of pot holes and
washboard with out any rubbing.
I've got the rear driver's side wrinkle, a slightly lowered rear suspension
(using stock '92 S4 springs; about 1/3" drop?), and 255/40r17 tires. I've
had the car overloaded far beyond design; slight rubbing on the liner, but a
simple mod and it's fine. Remember, as the rear suspension is compressed,
travels through an arc, and the top outer portion of the tire moves inward.
I've jacked up the passenger front corner of the car, which tends to
the driver's rear corner, then had several bodies in the trunk; no rubbing.
Oh, and re: the beer, if it was _good_ beer, I'd have put some of the stuff
on my lap and made room, or pulled out the roof racks...
