New wheels and tyres, Terrible clicking sound

Spent some time today after night shift putting these new tyres on my car ive had in the shed for a while, finished tightened all the wheel nuts and as ive gone to slowly reverse down my driveway there is a clicking sound synchronised with the wheels turn coming from the rear wheels of my car, there is ALOT of clearance and its all brand new. Help how can I get rid of this terrible noise, suppose to drive 1000km tommorow

You using stock, made for SLK, Mercedes wheels? If not, I bet your rear lug bolts are too long and are hitting the e-brake drum....
