We would love to see photos of your car, please share!

Have anyone had rubbing issues with Ec-7 18x10 ET25 Front and 18x11 ET25 rear, 275 35 18 Front and 285 35 18 Rear with RS3's?
It looks like my front tires rub my kw clubsport spring. Btw, i have -2.8 camber at front.
Do i need to add 5mm spacers tho?

Due to the helper spring that KW uses with their Clubsport coilovers, the spring perch sits very low, thus the use of the 18x10" ET25 requires a 5mm spacer to clear the perch. This is due to the extra width of the 18x10" ET25 wheel compared to the OEM wheels. For example, the 18x10" ET25 EC-7 is a full inch wider than the Style 359 (ZCP) wheel in front, and has 7mm less clearance on the strut side. Combined with a wider tire size, such as your 275/35/18 RS3, and the low spring perch of the KW Clubsports, the wheels and tires then interfere with the spring perch and would either require the use of a small spacer, or the removal of the helper spring which many have done as well.

I have tried the 5mm spacers on the front. When the tires shop took off my wheels, the driver side tire rubbed so badly, but the passenger side tire was barely rubbed. And the passenger side tire is rubbing my fender when i turn right. I'm worry about that the driver side is still slightly rubbing my spring, and the passenger side is rubbing my fender. Do you have any suggestions for me? Do you think my -2.8 front camber causes the problems?

We have heard of the 18x10" ET25 with a 275/35/18 tire cause slight rubbing on the fender liner, but not on the fender itself unless the car is at a very low ride height. Hopefully your shop will be able to pinpoint the cause of the rubbing and help you resolve it, as your camber settings should be able to suffice for fender clearance.

Unfortunately we don't have a photo of this setup at the moment. Here is a shot of an M3 Sedan with Anthracite 18" ARC-8's which is the closest photo we have available:



Hopefully this helps!
