You should be fine on spring clearance, but some people do rub somewhere on the inner side at full steering lock. Can't remember where the rub point is there. A 3mm spacer will fix the inner rub, but my experience is that you will probably end up needing a front fender roll if you push the wheel out at all. You may eventually need a roll either way, though 245 instead of 255 will help. On track, the thing that chews up fenders is opposite lock. Setups that are fine on the street end up eating fenders when you're catching oversteer. I have a 15mm spacer on +62 and 255, and I found a roll wasn't sufficient. The tire ended up pulling one of the fenders out (chewed up the tire, too).

I have the TR wheels, too. They are bulletproof. Only downside is they don't have any room for a BBK.

I found Lower A Arm mounted brake ducts from CCP Fabrication for the fronts (Girodisk rotors, with Lambert ducts...should've use Aircraft Spruce components (way cheaper)) and rub them with the stock 215 Firestones, at full lock. I am hoping that 2 degrees neg camber will provide some extra clearance. If not, then Dremel surgery will be needed.

To answer an earlier question, I don't think there's any reason to run spacers in the rear just because you run them in the front. Especially when they're that small.
