I used 215/45-17 with our Eibach Pros and no rubbing. The pros, however only drop the car 1.5" compared to the sportlines. 205/45-17 is a reasonably popular replacement size as well. It is also an ideal overall tire diameter and due to its width, less likely to rub under lowering conditions. A lot depends on the wheel offset as to what will and will not rub. Can you share the offset of your new wheels with us?
