not to doubt what the technicians have said, I just cant see the molding or tires causing those scuffs unless they came out of the wheel well But maybe I'm just having trouble visualizing...

the BMW 19" Light Alloy Wheel Double-spoke Style442 M with Mixed Performance Tires do protrude out of the wheelwells a tad at the corners. A 435 M sport with sport tires isnt exactly a moms minivan with narrow 16 inchers where are the wheels are all safe and sound inside the well. Basically the car collapsed on that wheel causing the dented panels...those black marks are actually rubber scuff marks, not paint damage scuff like if you were to scrape concrete. Crazy I know....I cant image it myself.
