I have 18's that don't rub and my car is lowered. What wheels are they mate and is your car lowered? Pictures would help too

Yeah ive got 18" and if your on avo's you should be fine. However if your on coilovers you will need your arches rolling.

Also, if the offset of the wheel is wrong, they will rub

People have 18's, lowered suspension and they dont rub if you have the correct offset.

however if the offset is wrong, they will rub in anything above 17"

Ordog dont call me a thick B*****D but what do u meen by getting them rolled?
Take your car to a garage or bodyshop and they will grind and smooth the inside of your arches to give you more clearance :)

i have 18" alloys which are slightly wider (7.5j) and they rub on full lock
you can fit some spacers, but id go no more then 3mm

i didnt fit any to mine and just dont full lock unless i have to :D
