Default anyone rubbing with a 42mm offset?

this is for an EK.... i want to pick up some 15x6.5 +42 offset rims.. i really want to toss some 205/50/15's but i had some rubbing issuses when i had 15x6.5 with a +40 with 205/50/15's .... i was thinking of going 195/50/15 or 195/55/15 on the +42 offset just to prevent rubbing issues.. i wanted to know what other people have... cause i don't want to raise my car up... safe thing for me to do is just go with the 195/50/15 but i want the 205/50/15s........any help would be great thanks

i run a +32 offset with a 6.5inch wide rims it's fine, just don't have your camber zero'd out, but with +42 you should have any problems

my height now is no gap all around..a little tucked in just a little.. but before when i had my 15x6.5 +40 with 205/50 i raised it with about a little over one finger gap and it was ok for normal driving.. but when you hit corners hard its just all bad... you can see the color of the paint scratched all over the sidewall
