With the stock 18's (I use them on the track) I am running 15mm front and 10mm rear. This helps dial out the understeer inherent in the car due to the smaller wheel width in the front and resulting narrower track. My front and rear track are almost exactly the same now which yields a fairly neutral car.

The car is also sitting on H&R Sport springs. There is no rubbing or issues with this setup (stock tire sizes) and car drives great.

I've always used H&R Trak+ spacers and lug bolts/studs with great success! --ch.
There you are - are you coming in soon so we can look where the interior rattle is?
