Increase ground clearance w/tires and wheel combo

Maybe a dumb Q but, since adding my ACS splitter yesterday, I have scraped it twice at my sons school.

Was wondering if the right combination of wheel/tires (22s with fat tires) would increase the ground clearance (need about 1 inch) so that doesnt happen anymore?

Thought?

Air lift system. With air ride you can raise the car about 2-3 over stock or lower all the way down

I read that the larger radius from center will skew the speedo...guess the kids will be taking the bus.

ajp-
My car has been lowered. (I don't have GFX, btw). I have never scraped. But, when I go in or out of a driveway that is a bit steep, I always take it at an angle and not straight on. I have found that helps a lot.
