Do you guys think there will be scrubbing issues with 18x7.5 +43 wheels with 235 40 18 tyres?

Not if you trim the plastic fillers. :P

You May be able to extrapolate somewhat using your current clearances, specs etc vs your proposed setup using a rim and tyre calculator eg willtheyfit.com

But bear in mind some tyres have a meatier shoulder than others in the same spec.

Thanks for that. I just bought some secondhand RE30's 18x7.5 +50 with S001 215 45 18 tyres..
This should clear big time hey.
What I'm more excited about is the weight loss from stock 11.3kg (correct me if wrong) to 7.2kg wheels

Looks great!
What parts/alignment/mods support that fitment without rubbing?
