Rubbing tyres

I’ve recently had the eibach pro kit springs (15mm drop) fitted along with a full geo setup.
The car feels great,planted and predictable as you would expect however any spirited driving over the slightest of undulations in the road surface is resulting in the front tyres rubbing on the outer edge of the arches.
I’m no expert but I assume this shouldn’t be happening and I’m assuming there’s a problem with my shocks, I’m not a mechanic but I’m quite capable of checking the car over, if anyone more knowledgeable knows what the likely causes are and could post up that would be great
Tia Tony.

Didnt have any rubbing before the eibach springs though,The gap under the fronts just looks to close considering its only a 15mm drop, the car has done 64k and I know the Honda shocks have been known to fail with a lot less mileage than that
