also depends on how low the car is, offset, tire width..

but i have 17 x8.5's on my e36 and it was/is slammed.. no issues

I know mine were 17" but the width was the same 8.5"

As long as you keep the overall diameter the same as (or close to) stock and don't go crazy with width, you'll be OK.

I used to run 17x8 with 225/45-17 on my slammed 318i. No problems, ever.
I ran 19x8.5 with 235/35-19 for a while. The rear tires rubbed when I hit bumps.

225mm wide tires on a 18x8 wheel will most probably be OK unless you're on hydros...

18x8, 215/40/18.

Most would say my car is pretty low. No rubbing, and I could still go lower.
