Sorry to dig up this old thread, but Im also seriously considering this setup, 17" all round.
Quick question, I know you mentioned that your rear rubbed when driven spiritedly. How about the front? There seems little clearance, does it rub when turning etc?
No problem, feel free to dig up any old thread, new information is always good
Rubbing is a weird thing because it really depends on several factors.
1. The exact make/model of tire (some run wide, some run skinny, and some run normal)
2. The exact amount of drop (sometimes higher is actually worse)
3. The exact amount of negative camber
For this exact make and model of tire, and how low I was running the car, I needed -2.1° to not rub up front. I eventually settled on -2.3°, and was very happy with it, no rubbing at all, regardless of how hard I cornered the car. If I hit a big bump, however, I could rub a little on the top of the wheel arch liner, which is pretty common, and didn't cause an issue. I imagine if you did that a lot you could wear a hole, but again, I didn't do that much, and it depends on other factors. My goal for this wheel/tire set was merely aesthetics, so I didn't run them hard except to test.
Since you didn't ask about the rear, and I had 2 sets, if you have questions about that, please reference the small, or big rear set.
