Unless you go to an undersized tire, I think those 8” rims will continue to give you tire rub. And, the 205’s and 215’s are not supposed to be mounted on rims over 7.5”. 300K’s with the HD suspension sit a little lower than other Chryslers due to stiffer springs and torsion bars and you might just crank the torsion bars up for an inch higher ride height and get by with the tires you have. Realign if you do this. Depending on the current sag of the rear springs, you might want to jack up the back, also--=by re-arching the rear springs.
I have seen curb cuts and driveway openings where temporarily laying down a 2 X 8 plank would ease the transition and eliminate road rash and tire rub by making the driveway to street transition a little less steep.
