Chain to tire clearance

What's the minimum chain to tire clearance one should be aiming for on a bike?

On the Moby I'm building I have a pretty large rear tire and with everything spaced properly and aligned I have about 1mm of chain to tire clearance.

I can probably move the wheel forward in the swingarm a bit more without hitting the narrower right side of the swingarm but don't know how much clearance I need to avoid the chain rubbing on the tire.

Thanks for any insight
