I have 20mm spacers on all 4 corners. The tire edge seems to be just at the fender edge, meaning if I hit a big bump or get a good road dip the suspension travel MAY cause a tire/fender contact. I could get springs that were stiff enough that the chassis would never bottom out but that would create havoc on ride quality, mine's a daily driver. I would like to hear from people that have both spacers and lowering springs.

i have 20mm spacers for my +30mm offset 8.5" wide wheels...
and j/ like urs, my rear tires are near the fender edges...however,
i have eibach lower springs, and was able to adjust my camber to be
1.8 degrees...so, it's some what in an angle..
for 5 months, no problem yet~

This is interesting - I was kind of curious if this was an issue on "superflush" cars. Surely suspension geometry factors into this as well, because the direction in which the wheel moves in relation to the body on suspension compression would affect whether or not it could potentially make contact with the fender. I would think, since our fenders are "rolled" from the factory, that a small amount of camber would probably pull the tire far enough inboard from the fender to avoid contact.

You wont have any problems. When the suspension travels upward in the fender it naturally cambers in. I have tein s techs (1.3" drop) with a 10.5 +22 which is 18mm wider towards the outside and i have zero problems. I could go quite a bit lower and still not have any problems so im sure you will be fine.

This.

As long as you're close and not sticking out like crazy, no worries.
