KW V3 swift/hyperco spring conversion? Spring OD comparison?

Hi,
I am running KW V3s and having issues with inner clearance on the front, my tires are rubbing the springs.
I wonder if Swift or Hyperco springs have a smaller OD so that I can gain more clearance from switching over.
Thank you

Some 5mm wheel spacers would be so much easier.
