Using the Steeda Sports with tokico d-specs on a rather-stiff setting (only 1 or 2 turns from full hard), and tops of the bumpstops trimmed about 3/4", there is no rubbing and adequate clearance, even for street use.

Can anyone measure a 325/50R15 for total width edge to edge?
I have a Currie 9" in the car and a set of Bogart RT's.
I'm sitting on a set of Steeda Sport Springs
I'll be removing the bumpstop brackets.
