I have 17x7 Konig Traffiks w/ 205 40 17's. I also have H&R springs. Rear: I shaved some of the lip but recommend you roll it using a roller tool you can rent at Pboys or simmilar, I believe. Front: I shaved some of the plastic liner off using a dremel. Look around for rubbing marks and work it. Good luck :)

I have very wide 205/50r15s on 15x7 Rotas on my X3, and my car is very, very low. It can be done. You just have to see where it's rubbing, and make fixes. I had to roll my fender lips and install a small spacer in the rear. Alignment makes a difference as well.

with a 205 width tire the aspect ratio of 40 is too much sidewall on a 17" rim, if u can find them try 30 profile tires, and BTW, if you rub now, when you lower the car on just springs, then you'll REALLY rub, see if you can get a camber kit if the rubbing is only on the outside, that might fix your problem right there...

In the latest issue of Super Street (April 06), there is a how to article on rolling your fenders. The article is in the how2 section on page 158. The article describes the two methods of fender rolling, the first being the proper method using a fender roller tool, and the second being the ghetto DIY method using a wooden baseball bat. The article is a step-by-step guide complete with pictures.
