At the moment, I'm running Arc 8's 45 offset with 255/35 wheels and have never had an issue with yellow koni's and OEM style springs.
The shock tube is typically wider with coilovers but the linear spring is more narrow. You can see that if you adjust them to a lower setting the tire has a chance to rub on the spring perch
