H&R Sport - Too low...

I changed the springs on my car over the weekend and replaced the stock sport suspension springs with the H&R Sport but the front if the car is way to low, there is about 1mm clearance when the wheels are turned between the fenders and the tire. I took it for a ride and it rubs when the road is not perfectly flat.
I have wide rims and tires so that explains the rubbing.
Anyone knows who makes springs where the drop is less than the H&R Sport? I'm looking to get the car about 1inch lower than the stock sport springs.
Thanks

Or just keep the suspension and get new size on your front tires. Those sport springs r really common and I have heard great things.

I was thinking about going this route for my e92 M Sport. I drove a MKV GTI before with H&R sport springs and Bilstein dampeners, and the ride was a bit rough. Do you need to replace the dampeners with the sport suspension? Also, how is the ride quality?
