Default Tire to wheel tub clearance

How much room do you guys usually leave between the top of the tire at full suspension compression, and the wheel tub?

Tire is a 14x32 on a 14 inch rim, wheel tubs are 40 inch.

maybe gilbasch will chime in he has a way to tell you the tube hit from the jig I believe not sure how he figure that out but 3 should be ok as long as the tire does not grow excessive
