Default 17" Rim on '98 Civic EX

Does anybody have this setup? If so, do your rims rub? I've been having a lot of problems with this package for the last couple months. The tire size is 205/40/17. It has been lowered 2 inches. After market struts and shocks.

If they did rub, what did you so to fix this, other than cutting the wheel wells?

we need more info Dawg.

What size is the Tire?
Is you Civic Lowered?
if so, how much of a Drop is it?

I had 18's on my Civic and rubbed a little bit only on sharp turns. But when I put the Air Bags on, on the Front, I rubbed every where!! lol

All I did was roll the Fenders a bit on the Front and on the Back.
