depends on your drop and the stiffness of your suspension, as well as rim size/tire size

i run a 40mm offset 16x7 with 205/50/r16's on sportlines and i dont rub at all

It really depends on how much drop you have or intend to use as well as width of tire and wheel you intend to use. Unfortunately there's lots of variables that must be considered.

yeah it all depends on the height and width of the tire and how much of a drop you have..

i have 42mm and a 1.6" drop and with anything under 24" OD tire it wont rub.. with 215/45s it rubbed under hard cornering til the tread went away some.. with 225/45s it rubbed under hard cornering. i put spring spacers up front which lifted the front about 3/4" and now no rubbing with the 225/45/17s
