I've rolled my fenders all the way up and that has fixed MOST of the rubbing. I still rub if I go up an incline or hit a dip in the road. I'm on 18x7.5 wrapped in 225/40/18.

i shaved my rear fender cause it will give more clearance than rolling them
i have 18x8.5 +25 no rubbing issues even with 4 other people in the car

whats your offset? depending on you offset they will rub
suspension ? soft suspension = more suspension travel which will then = tire rubbing on the fenders
how low are you ? it also depends on how low you are the lower you are the more prone you are to rubbing

haha seriously... HELLA SUNK still.. Looks like maybe a 10mm spacer at the most. If you put a 20 mm spacer on there itll make the offset a +20 and that sir would be pretty damn flush even with a 17x8 wheel.
