no the ss/sc springs will lower your car maybe a 1/2 in at the most.

For roughly 160 shipped you can get Tenzo-R springs and they will lower you enough to get rid of the gap. 2.0 in front and 2.5 in back

I have 225/45/17s on my car now, and no rubbing issues, I dunno about when I lower it but I guess I'll find out. I'm pretty sure some of the SS/SC and SS/TC guys are running 225/40/18s or 225/45/18s with no issues.
