i have Enkei Evo 5 18x7.5 rims with tires that are 225/40/18. I am dropped on Skunk2's and i get a lot of rubbing. I was looking to maybe get thinner tires but not sure what size to get.

any recommendations?

Thanks.

Are you rubbing in the front or the rear?

You shouldn't be having problems with that setup. Get a camber kit for the front and the rear and dial in some negative camber. More up front than the back for handling purposes.

i'm rubbing more in the front than in the rear. i mean its fine if i'm driving on perfectly smooth road, but with the slightest bump it scrapes. =/

i think the offset is 35. and it rubs on top of the fender when i hit bumps. its nasty.

You're probably rubbing on the tabs in the front. What I did was cut off the metal tabs in the front, cut off a chunk of my inner fender liner, and rolled whatever was left in the front.

Of course you don't have to go to this extreme. I'm running a more aggressive setup than you are. What I'd suggest is buying two pairs of SPC camber bolts and dialing in around -1.5 degrees of negative camber in the front. With that offset and width, you shouldn't be having inner clearance issues.

If you get thinner tires, you're going to mess up the accuracy of your speedometer. Your wheel/tire combination has to be within a certain diameter, or else you're going to throw off your speedometer.
