Default Need some help with Tire sizes

I bought a set of 17x8 rims with tires sized 225/55zR17 and they rub when going over big bumps and taking sharp turns. So my question is what size tire would I need to eliminate the rub? Car is an 08 wrx.

Okay thanks! I see on tire rack each tire has a different end number and letter for example "Size: 235/45R17 97W XL" What is the 97w XL? Some others were 94w, 94v, 93w etc etc

I wasn't sure if that influenced the profile of the tire or anything like that...so yea seriously. And you realize you spent more time making that condescending post than you would have just answering it? But thank you.
