I am running a 17x9 +45mm RPF1 with a 17mm spacer to clear the calipers. Anyways this combo is giving me an effective offset of 28mm and I am running a 255 dunlap star spec tire. As you can imagine the wheel/tire set up has quite a lot of poke...think 1.5" of tire sticking out of the fender.

Now back on track to my question, I am not trying to lower the car since I primarily drag race but I want to have the top of the front tires sit in closer or more "flush" and less poke. Anybody out there have the knowledge to tell me approximately or ball park how much camber I would need to run to get to where I want to be?
Ill would probably do -3 all the way around or little less, but just miss with it to be honest! Pics would help also.

Thanks for the response man! Here is a picture. -3 seems doable, I was worried it might be more than that but like I said I have no idea so I wanted to ask the experts.

Not a expert, but I think -3 will be fine and that's not too much. Maybe even -2 would be fine.

Hey guys just had a quick question. Figured I should ask the masters. I plan to run 18x9-9.5 or 17x9 with somewhat of a low offset. maybe +30? i dont know if thats low lol but thats kinda what im looking for. I know I'm going to need to roll my fenders but would I have to run any camber? I plan to be low enough to be tucking some tire. Any word of advice would help. Thanks!

I'm not too sure but I kinda want a wide tire and or if I have to stretch then something that I don't have to stretch too much.

the less stretch, the more camber you'll need.

I have a 17x9 +30 set up with a 225/45 and just rolled rears and run about -2 front and back and no rubbing issues.

Are you stretched? I plan in running maybe 235 or 245. And if you had no camber think you'd still rub?

Almost no stretch. They're federals which run super wide. But yes if had no camber they would stick out passed the body a little so would run for sure.
