yah probably. I run 17x7.5 et32 front 40 rear, 205/40/17. 235's will be a tight fit if you plan on going really low

Understatement.

I'm convinced 17x7.5 et40 205/40/17 is the best setup for a flush-tuck stance. I just managed a 500 mile road trip, tucking wheel in the rear due to weight, and it didn't rub one little bit and the wheel still sits right at the arch.

235 will be tight but it has been done by some of the autocross guys. You won't be super low, but if you're contemplating 235's that's probably not a priority for you.

I am scrubbing on my 17x7.5 et35 (205/40) only when nipping on. What would the best course of action be?

My wife's opinion of the underside of her nearly $30,000 car scrapping over everything taller than a nut hair limit's the amount of low I can attain

So i'd like to make the clubbie look a little more like this guys instead of ultra slammed.

I have no idea what "nipping on" means. Reminds me of nipples

Where is it rubbing? A little camber maybe?

I would say no.

I'm running 15x7 et24 with 195/50/15 and the tires rub the plastic fenders in the rear. Bigger tire, wider wheel and a lower offset makes it pretty unlikely unless you do some massive negative camber adjustments.

17x9 et30 (30mm) on a 2nd-Gen for front & and rear?
Searched and located photos of 16x9's but haven't much concrete images for the latter.
