How much clearance is needed on the front for tyre to spring pearch clearance? This Is with coil overs
10mm?

Running a 185 55 15 and just wondering due to tyre deflection under cornering etc.

10mm should be plenty. When i had the 14 inch stock bluebird wheels I had maybe 3mm on one side and it didn't hit (also with coil overs). The 15's I run now have a bit more clearance as I got +12 to space them out a bit.

These are z 31 wheels and 30 offset. Last ones were 20 offset.

Being at the top of the tyre, I wouldn't expect any deformation from cornering.
If it clears by 1mm, it clears by 1mm!
Any polished areas will tell the tale :shock:

It's right smack bang in the middle. Between the sidewall bead and start of the tread casing

That's about what I had with the old wheels, if it doesn't hit when on the ground it will never hit I don't think... All the tyre change under load is where the tyre meets the road.

That kink in the brake hose doesn't look good.
