tire cleance issue on a lowered truck

Ive got a 75 C-10 thats been lowered, unsure of how much drop it is. I just realized how little room I have from the top of the tire to the inner wheel well. It only has 1.75"- 2.0" of clearance. so far the only rubbing Ive noticed is, for example making a turn on a semi steep incline, it rubs a little.
my concern is if I hit a dip or big enough bump in the road, like a bridge approach, at speed, & it rubs.
well it just rub, or will this become a control issue ? anyone else experiance this at all ? John

I drive a slamed truck daily and experience rubbing on a frequent basis. It won't effect the handleing so much as it becomes uncontrolable And mine only rubs when I hit a big dip in the highway or such. There are a couple of options 1 get a shorter tire 2 raise hte truck 3 install an adjustable suspension 4 cut out inner fenders.
