The RG320DXFM is likely a 400mm(~16") or 430mm(~17") radius. So your nut and replacement tremolo should be close to this radius. I would do a little searching for the nuts and tremolos you are looking at to find out what the radius is on them.

Yes! I've been researching before buying so far:
Original floyd rose or schaller is 12" radius.
In ebay they sell shims for adjusting floyd rose.
Wizard ii is 15.75" radius so i need some shims.
Also ive been measuring.
String space fron E-e is 54mm in the ibanez edge iii which is the same as for schaller bridge, which has 10.8mm between strings, multiply by 5 and is the same.
Between keys, distance is also the same: 74.3
Overall lenght is 67 in edge iii and 61.3 in schaller which is ok.
Width is 67 on edge iii and 69 on schaller which may be a problem but the actual hole in the ibanez body is larger.

So far is my report

Talking about the nut...
Ibanez width 43mm string spacing 36
R3 nut: 42.9 - 35.4mm
R4 42.9 - 36.5mm
This need to think about
