Finally wheels came in after almost a year of backorders (originally ordered 57DRs). These were my 2nd choice and I didn't want to wait another 4-6 months for the 57DRs.

Rears are cambered as much as they can go on the Godspeed LCAs I have, and the front have a little bit of camber but not much front the slotted struts (Buddy Club Sports). Gap is about 1.5 fingers around. Front is rubbing when turning and hitting a dip at the same time or if I hit a big bump/pot hole. I did lower my coils after mounting them since I noticed there was more gap than with the OEM setup. With the rubbing though I might raise it back up 1/8" all around and probably will look into getting the fenders rolled.

So a 3mm spacer was not enough so I went with a 5mm. The fronts still need more camber cause its rubbing on big dips and Ive heard that running 2 front camber bolts yields more camber adjustment???

Camber bolts with camber plates yes

I was able to get some shots in this afternoon.

FYI I plan to lower it back down since I just got the fenders rolled yesterday. Only the fronts were rubbing from what I could tell, but I had the shop roll the rears as well so I can take out some of the rear camber. Without the rear camber the wheels definitely fit more flush in the back (the track is almost a 1" wider in the rear), but I was afraid of rubbing. With the fenders rolled now I'm hoping I can bring the camber back in a bit to have the fitment more to my liking.

Perfect. What’s your current camber? I’m replacing my +35 RPF1’s and I’m flush with rolled fenders. Maybe half a degree up front and 1.5 in the rear

I haven't actually measured the camber, but per Godspeed the V3 controls arms are adjustable up to +/- 3 degrees. So I'm assuming I'm at -3 in the rear. The front just have a tiny bit of camber (just slightly negative) using the slotted bolt hole on the buddy club struts.

After some adjustments, installation of a second camber bolt, and an alignment my specs are

17x9 +20 with a front spacer
17x9 +40 rear
255/40 Falken RT660
-3.8 degrees front camber, 0.00 front toe
-3.0 degrees rear camber (no adjustment), 0.00 toe
Fenders have been rolled but fronts could also use a pull.

Looks good! You're running a 20mm spacer in the front? Is it on in the pictures? If so it looks like with the camber it's sitting just about flush at the top.

Also, I considered putting a red vinyl on my bronze set but wasn't sure if the paint would come off with it down the line if/when I decide to replace the vinyl or just remove it altogether. The paint on the Konig's are pretty thin.

Did you have to pull/roll your fenders? If so, mind showing a close up lol.
All my fenders have been rolled to fit a more aggressive track setup but I think the fronts could still be pulled a little. This setup however doesnt rub at all. The camber specs are -3.8 Front and -2.5 rear
