Default Oddball rub question. (Winter tire question)

For my winter tires, I am using 215/55/r17 snow tires. I plan on going with a drop of about 1.1-1.5 inches this spring. When I swap back to my snow tires next winter in 2011, do you guys think it will rub and not work at all or do you think it will be fine. As the car sits right now with stock suspension and the snow tires, its a tight fit.

Thanks for your assistance,

Current tire/suspension mods:

Tires: Winterforce 215/55/R 17
Suspension: Stock 2009 WRX suspension

if it's a tight fit now and you want to lower your car at least an inch, i think you already know the answer.

Should not rub as you are using a wheel and tire that keeps the wheel tucked inside the fender, lots of room,
