1 - do you really want to run adapters? they are not good (obviously you need them for those rims)
2 - I have 18's on lows with 245/40's and they rubbed, still it was only $80 at my local tyre place to get them rolled without any paint damage, so go for it!

I don't know really I just went in and they said they'd do it, and it was $80 all up. It was done at Ozzy tyres on Heathcote Rd Moorebank.

Get 35mm hub adaptors.
I have superlows, 18x8s with 245/40s from a BF and 35mm spacers, and I havent had to roll the guards, though I have now as I want to go lower.

I had 17x8s with 235/45s previously, no issues at all.
