issues with frpp

i got the whole frpp suspension kit i put it on during the winter so i kind of expected my snow tires to rub which they did they are a bigger size i dont recall at the moment but they are a profile or so above stock no big deal but i put my wheels on the other day which are 205/45/17s i dont remember the offset either but they are focus wheels with just a 108 pattern no universal hub or anything they are icons and they still rub not as much but they still do slightly mostly on hard cornering into a dip and if i hit a bump at a turn does anyone else have issues with rubbing on the frpp kit? i meani installed myself at my shop so its done right there are no issues there but i dont really know i kinda thought i would be safe with a 17x7

Are they rubbing on the fender? Spacers would make it worse, if thats the case.
Is it the front or the rear? If it is the front then it could be as easy as bending the tabs in the fender at the 12 o'clock position.

Spacers push the wheel out further from the center of the car. If you are rubbing on the fender then this would make your situation worse.

Yup, roll the fenders or get a stiffer suspension.
