You'll be fine. I'm lowered 2.5" and I ran that exact same wheel/tire size for two summers with minimal rubbing.

Re: Will i rub?

Go with 16's. Smaller wheel = better acceleration.

Re: Will i rub?

Probably not, but as above stated, 16's will be less of a chance. If they do rub with the 17's it'll only be slightly when turning hard.
