wheel gap

i have my car lowered with tein springs (1.5 inches lowered all around) with 215/35/18 tires. I can stick 3 fingers in the wheel gap. just wondering how much other ppl have there's lowered.

i was thinking bout lowering it another inch or half an inch but i don't know yet. also, i don't want to loose any driveability, bottom out, or have to change new struts every so often.

I have Eibach Sportlines .
So I have 1 finger gap in the rear (2.4" Drop)and 1.5 fingers in the front (1.8" Drop)...
P.S. I have 15" stock rims, but it would be the same gap with 17" rims and low profile tires.
