From my experience (and Nick T’s insight), offset was the primary contributor to rubbing. Offset of ET35 seems to be the magic number. OE SAAB wheels are >40 I think. I had Ronal 17x8 ET35 with 5mm spacers on front (effectively ET30) and the rubbing on every little dip was intolerable. Removed spacers and pretty sure rubbing was cured. I’ve since switched to double 3 spokes. Might fool around with the 17x8s again this summer.
