Some people have issues with the perch being too low with the Clubsports and choose to either remove it or add a small spacer for better wheel clearance with wider wheels and tires. A spacer may remedy this issue for the KW V3s, but the only other option would be to switch the front springs for 60mm linear 6" springs if one decides to retain the KW dampers.

If I remember correctly, you'll be switching out for another suspension setup correct Mark? Just remember to use a 6" linear race spring and you should not have any issues with front wheel and tire fitment.
yeah planning on it for next year sometime, but want to get it running right now, no tires on my volks now lol
