Depends how low your front end is?

I can't comment coz I had adjustable camber dialed in as soon as I went lower than 35mm drop from OEM.

I need some help guys. I'm running 255/40 all the way around and 1.6 camber but from the looks of my car, it looks like the tire is going to hit the top of my fenders. I drove around for a good 20 minutes through speedbumps and drive ways no rubbing so far. Will I rub or crumble my fender if I hit a large enough bump

will 18x9's with 255/35's, mild camber (1-2 degrees), 13/13.5 height, and 12 or 15mm spacer in rear work just fine? Any comments to this setup?

It'll work just fine. I run the same size tires, close to those ride heights with 12.5 mm spacers in the rear.

Me...

Front: 2.5 degrees camber, 0 degrees toe
Rear: 1.5 degrees camber, 0 degrees toe

Anyone have experience with 255/40 Michelin PSS's and Dinan springs with 12.5mm spacers in the rear? Looking at this setup for a street driven car and crumbling fenders/shredding tires isn't an option. Also, I've read that the 12.5mm rear still leaves the track width wider at the front. Any measurements out there to confirm?
