Tires rubbing on fender!

Alright, I was running 235/45/17 (stock specs) on my TL wheels and found some 255/45/17 tires that were brand new and for a great price--Continental DWS for $360! Anyways, I had them mounted since some of the TL guys were running those specs on their wheels.

But, now my rear tires are actually rubbing on the metal fender lip edge and not even the plastic liner. I'm lowered on the Eibach ProKit so I was wonder if you guys had any suggestions besides going back to stock springs. Can I do something about that inside lip? Roll the fenders, maybe?

You can see the abrasive marks on the tire from that lip.

Yeah these new tires are just fat hahaha. I should have known to stick with a 30 or 35 height when trying to run a 255 width.

Haha for some reason I always thought rolling fender was to get that bulge in the wheel well to fit deep wheels. Now I know that rolling is to get rid of that metal edge.

schwiggy, thanks for the link. I'll save it just in case.

funk, they're running 255-40-17:
Why you should get 255/40-17 tires for your OEM rims !!! - Page 18 - AcuraZine Community

I ended up doing the baseball bat method and it worked

Here's a pic showing the difference:
