whats the absolute closest the rim can be to the coil?
Does anyone know, i have a 18x8 (as you probably know), and its about 10mm~13mm away from the coil, havent tried on the rubbers yet, what do you think, will i have any problems, or will i have to get a spacer, this problem is only in the front, not the back.
its +40 offset btw

i have about a couple sheets of paper gap between mine. i have 19x8.5 et 40 with 235/35/19 tires

Same here...I have 18 x 8.5 ET30 with 3mm spacers just to clear the coilover perches...only have about this much gap ] [

If its a 40et... you are going to get a rib running around the tire. I had this happen to me.. I went 8mm spacers front and its all good with clearance... If you really wanted the wheel inside the fender you could probably get away with like a 38et! (meaning you would need a 2mm spacer)

what do you mean rib?

What do I mean? Rib isnt the correct word... EDIT to Groove!!!
With a 40et and coilovers, and the proper tires on those 18x8 (225/40) you will run into the locking collar cutting a groove into the tire!
On a sidenote, do you have any idea what you are doing?
