Default Lift for TDI Sportwagen (for oversize tires)

First forgive me for wanting to do this ( SUVs and lower Cars I know but for some strange reason I want to go counter tradition!) actually ended up with larger than std tires on some non vw rims, which rub when going over large bumps. Therefore I would like to raise the vehicle by about 2 inches if possible.

Any ideas and or off the shelf solution (easy) would be best!

Thought about adding air bags to the rear suspension: I am lead to believe the process is straight forward.

Mainly the front and at times the rear rubs while at highway speeds and going over those overpass joint bumps in some rough places.

Must say the ride did improve and the car looks like a beast. Will figure out the process to load pics.

Thanks in advance for constructive suggestions.

Continental Extreme Contact : 225 zr 55 /16

Sorry about the delay in response but things are crazy for me right now.
Pics coming this weekend I hope.

Thanks very much for the responses. Good stuff, will follow up on things
soon. Want a strong euro hitch as well hopefully by summer, I can get the
lift and hitch done.
