Yes..the rubbing is on the inside on the front struts and is related to et or offset. This was a known issue with my stock type 96 17x8 wheels with 47 et. My new wheels with a 40et has resolved the issue.
I believe a 8.5" wide with with 38et will be fine as I've been told that a 40et will rub
Well i just mines installed on wednesday (29th) and the only problems i had was the fender issue sine i'm running 19x10's in the rear w/ 265/30 & 235/35 front tires, forgot what my offset is but i just rolled out my fenders and it was all good from then. I'm tucked to the rim in the rear and -1 finger in the front.
