Arrow Wheel/Tire Set-Up

Looking for a good wheel and tire setup that will give me the perfect gap between the tire and wheel well. Any Ideas? I kind of like the look of the STR607 Aluminum faced wheels but i'm open to anything.

Try to define what a "perfect gap" means to you, as closely as possible. If your car is lowered, that matters, too. Otherwise you're going to get what other people like for themselves, which might not match up with your preferences.

Some idea of tire size would also help, width at least.

If you want that perfect gap, do it with suspension, not tire size. If you change the rolling diameter of your wheel and tire, you will throw off the speedometer and wheel sensors calibrated for your stock drive train combination. That is why when you get bigger wheels and tires for that new ride, you get a smaller sidewall to compensate for the larger diameter tire. For example, going from a 55 series to a 45 series sidewall will maintain the correct rolling diameter. It is called plus sizing.
