I can barely fit one finger between the tire and the strut in the rear

As long as it doesn't rub when you drive, it doesn't really matter.

I can throw in my experiences and hope somebody finds them useful:

My camry came with white 18X8 ~+32 offset OZ wheels, 225/45/18 width tires. I replaced them with 17X8.5 ~+32 offset Rotas with 235/45/17 tires (Hankook RS3's).

the 17" wheels were ~ 4lbs lighter per corner, rolled the rear fenders and am much happier (no rubbing but really close). 17" wheels are a good balance between horsepower and handling (Road and track),

the 18's may look cooler but do extract hp with their increased moment of inertia and the tire prices really jumped.

Cheers,
