lowering on 22inch question

Hi,

I have 22 inch wheels on my car at the moment.
They are 22x9.5 and 22x10.5
tyres are 265/30/22 and 295/25/22
my question is i have bought some eibach springs that will drop roughly 15mm to 20mm. Currently the wheels touch the inner plastic lining at full lock. Has anyone got this wheel/tyre combination and can say this can be done or will i have to get spacers?

Thanks in advance

I'm dropped on Eibachs with 22" wheels. If your rubbing already, you won't need spacers cause it will cause it to rub more specially with a drop. Mines cleared fine with drop. Now I'm running spacers 20mm front and 30mm rears. Had to roll my fenders at the rear.
