Hey I run exactly the same set up and mine rubs when I take a right turn. We've tried folding back part of the arch liner but I just bear with it now. I'm running mine quite low as well so my splurged scrapes coming in and out of ramps or drives.

In Japan i see most of the time attack guys running 18's and 17's on the street for better drivability. I run 18's all the time street and track but i also run Toyo R888 all the time to, street and track..

I've driven my car with 17's with 255.40 Toyo T1-R and 18's with 255.35 Toyo T1-R and to be honest on the road there is very little in it ride wise or handling, on track it might be a different matter, but I don't know, (or care).

With standard bodywork 18's can look a little big, (design dependant), but as soon as you've got a bit of kit on it has to have 18's.

18's
not just cos they're bigger - I did the whole comparison thing ages ago and got loads of pics and they just fill the arches better!!
there's also a thread on here "pics of wheels on cars boys and girls"..... or something like that and if you look through it - you'll see loads in both sizes

17s on mine,
imho the spokes are more aggressive and have a nicer inwards curve compared to an 18 in the same width offset.
