Need MAJOR help . . .

I have a 99 Civic SiR with a 2.25" drop all the way around. Is there any way to make 215/35/18 wheels not rub ? The wheels are not on the car, but im guessing 99.9% that they will rub. If I remove the plastic wheel well linning, could I maybe get away without any rubbing ? I need major help here . . .

Those are alot bigger then the stock SIR size and that is a low drop. Maybe try a test fit and see if and where they rub and go from there.
