if u have 4WS, i wouldnt be going over 17"(especially if ur car is lowered also) cause it would continually hit while u do a full lock.
certainly for my stock 15" wheels with wider tyres when i did a full lock or reversed, the front wheels would rub and the rear wheels would make a clicking noise...
however if ur car is not lowered, i would say 18" SHOULD be ok AS LONG as u get very thin tyres
17X7.5's yes maximum lowering would leave about 20mm between tyre and gaurd.
18X7.5 is also possible with lipping of the outside front gaurd and possibly rolling. Rear would have to be rolled and lipped up and out to fit 18's.
18's would have to be custom ordered to get the right stud pattern with off-set. Most 18'son the market and 19's will fit RWD Jap cars with Off-set of RWD cars.
Anytinhg ove 17's you need to push out more which means the gaurd has to be lipped and pushed out. Also camber kit's to increase the camber. 19's wil fit on 2WS 19X8 will fit and have not problem as long as car is stock. I had 19's for a very short time on the wagon, they were 200SX RWD fit but didnt rub but due to height of the car under compression they cleared front and touched rear. But with slighty smaller tyres in width they were shaped just right.
