My street tires are square 225s on stock 7.5" wheels with tons of room left between the strut, tire, and fender and no rubbing under any circumstances. My new track wheels are 245s on 9" wheels and they rub the fender a tiny bit, but I've got a smaller spacer on order to rectify that... possibly a fender roller, too

I guess my question is... I will install the DINAN camber plates AND the M3 front arms... Will this give me too much negative camber? Or will I be Ok. ?

I have stock 18"wheels and 225/255 tires.

You want both! The more front camber the better. I run both and sit at -2.2 degrees in the front. Tire wear is even, understeer is greatly reduced. Also allows fitment of 245's in the front, which are the same diameter than stock, unlike the 225's or 235's.

When you get your alignment after, have them set front toe to +0.03 minutes per side, for a total of 6 minutes total toe in. Will have nice high speed stability and prevent inner tire wear.
