I'm on 17s, depends on the offset really. I believe I'm on a +42 offset, I "borrowed" these rims from my brother after he got new rims so I'm not 100% sure the offset. They were on a 94 integra before I "borrowed" them. Without rear spacers, the back never rubbed. With the rear spacers (I think I have 10mm Penguin spacers...been a while since I bought these) I had to roll the fenders and I still rub every now and then. Front rubs on occasion depending on how low you go. For reference, I have absolutely no gap between the tires and my fender. I'm on 194/40 Yokohama S.drives.

Definitely possible. As heeroyuy01195 points out, rubbing is another story.

Thanks for the replies guys, but on second thought the gap is really not that big with the stock suspensions and stock 17’s that my hatch has.

Might start learning towards spacers and/or different rims instead.

I wanna see how it turns out. I know it's possible but I haven't seen an actual one.

It's really not that big of a deal, guys. I've ran two different sets of 17" wheels, it's all my car has ever rolled on. With stock suspension, I had zero rubbing. It's at least a four finger fender gap. Looking back at it, GlacierMafia, the wheel gap is really big. I should have lowered my car years before I did.

Once I lowered a couple inches, I started getting a little rubbing over really big dips at higher speed but there are people that run 18s on these cars. Depending on suspension, you're going to have to deal with some rubbing but it's not that crazy. If you plan to track the car, you probably shouldn't go bigger than 16.
