Coilovers eliminate the rubbing issue SRT/2nd gens have with larger wheels/tires. No spring perch to rub against, so the only issue you'd have would be rubbing on the fender. You should be fine

Yeah, you'll be good with coilovers. I run 215/45/17 in the front and 205/45/17 in the rear. Clears stock spring perchs without an issue.

If you are on a budget, I recommend Monroe or SenSen shocks.
