    Have you tried the local breakers yard for a set of smaller rims?

    You could pull or roll the arches to give more clearance if it is just the outer wing coming into contact with the tyre.

    ^^ If you get the arches rolled dingle, just make sure that the person doing it is a professional. You should not be able to see any creases or wrinkles at all in the paintwork when the job has been done ;)
