OEM wheels are ET55 so something around there would be good with the 20mm drop however if your doing track days you'd be better either getting rid of the lowering springs or just upgrade your suspension and stiffen it up. Your front end is always going to dip down under heavy braking and turning so no matter what wheels you have your going to have issues if lowered and the springs are soft.

Have you thought of more chamber? or even coilovers to manually adjust ride height?

wheelhouse = wheelarch =)

I have upgrade the suspension to Eibach pro street and got the FRS,I have tried with 15mm instead of 20mm and it is still hittnig, if I raise to 10mm how mush will it affect the driving,will I feel the difference

It is 18*8 225*40*18 with ET 45 and on spacers

You shouldnt really be using any spacers TBH
ET 55 + 15mm spacer = ET40
ET 50 + 10mm spacer = ET40
ET 45 + 5mm spacer = ET40
ET 40 + 0mm spacer = ET40

Seems we are confusing springs and spacers.
The Eibach pro kit SPINGS is a fixed height and non adjustable.

As above, whats the reason for you using a spacer? Do you have a big break kit? If not your pushing your wheels out towards the arches and increasing the chances of rubbing them when you turn, your lowered so this is also going to not help

Ok some confusion here. If you dont use spacers and have 18 inch wheels with ET45 i dont see why you would be rubbing unless you've over lowered the car with your coilovers

This is down to the load being forced onto the front as weight shifts, you will get rubbing unless you stiffen your suspension. The coilovers you seem to have dont have adjustable damping, so they might be too soft for what your looking for and you cant stiffen them up. I suggest then that you adjust the ride height so your not lowered, this might help
