I've got 18" Rota Tarmac IIs with 215/40/18s. My car is lowered on Tein Htechs and there have been no rubbing issues. These wheels and tires were only used for daily driving so if you plan on tracking or autocrossing the car then I would suggest sticking with 17s or roll your fenders. I'm selling mine because I have two other sets of wheels and tires and I need the money. I'm selling for $750 with tires so you should be able to find a decent deal from someone in your area. Try to buy used if you can because you'll save some $.
