18" wheels on 2 inch drop

Has anyone had rubbing issues? I am dropped on 2" TEIN S-tech spring and I have 17's with no problems but thinking I may buy some 18's.....any feed back would be great....

I had 18s on a 2.5+" drop on my first Focus, and I never rubbed once. That said, I had coilovers which were a lot stiffer than the Teins. As long as the offset is +45mm (anything lower and you will probably rub). You will probably need to run 215/35s as well to keep the rubbing to a minimum.

Some people like the look. I am one of them, in fact, I am probably going to get 19s for my Rabbit.
