Given that you're at ET18 with the wheel on its own, a spacer would likely be counterproductive. That lower offset is the equivalent of having a spacer already. The Dinan kits lower the car, and also advertise increased suspension travel. So that lets the wheel travel even further up into the fender well, likely adding more rubbing if anything.

Do you know what your alignment specs were when you had the alignment done? If you are able to get more negative camber, that might help a little.

You could also check the fender liner, and see if you can trim any of the areas that are rubbing.

Other than that, I think changing back to a 245 is your most likely solution.
