    18" alloys

    will 18" alloys rub when my cars lowered by 40mm?

    Aslong as the ofset is ok and its got 215/35/18 on the you should be allright.

    I used to have alloys that were just off on the ET and 225's and it rubbed quite badly.

    A combination of offset/width/tire can cause rubbing, or could just be one causing it.
    For free hugs PM me.
