Someone said if you can fit a business card between you are ok but that seems to tight to me.

It also of course depends on the width of the wheel.

Stalker were you running a 9.5" wheel with a +25? I tried a 10" wheel with +25 with 265 on the front and it was pressing against the spring so hard the wheel wouldn't roll if I tried, when the car was on jacks.
The wheel was a Advan RS, 18x9.5 ET25, mounted on a Nitto NT05 that measured 275/35. I ran this combo both the Moton Street Sports and KW CS, zero rubbing, it was close, but nothing to worry about at all. Im guessing the RS-3s might be a bit more square. My camber was anywhere from -2.1 to roughly -2.8 up front at different times.

My new set up is going to be JRZ RS1 coils, with Volk TE37s ET22 18x9.5(not SLs) with 265/35 RS-3s. I am planning to run around -2.5 degrees of camber up front initially on the new set up.
