Default Honda Civic Hatchback 99 question about wheel fitment and lowering it.?

I have a 99 Civic Hatchback DX, Lowered with Function Form Type 1 suspension, and I have a rear camber kit for my car as well to fit my wheels without rubbing on the knuckle. The wheels I have is Kosei K1s 4x100 16x7.5 offset +43, tire size 205/45/R16. Its lowered to around finger gap or less, no rolled fenders yet. Apparently my car rubs on something when I turn.... I cant find out where its coming from so if anyone knows can you let me know. It rubs when I turn left or right, its a small scuffing sound...

It's rubbing from the inside.Probably the upper control arm. 7.5 is to wide, if you got 16x7 you would have been fine. So get another camber kit, or fix your camber.

if its scuffing you should be able to see it on the tires easily where it got scuffed

might need to make it higher or rolled fender
