    I just replaced the front pads on some V-brakes. I used Koolstop, and they have this little plow to them at the back end, know what I mean? So how should I set the toe-in?

    What would be good to use as a spacer? A dime? A nickel? And it kind of seems like the toe-in might automatically set since the back end of the pad is already farther from the rim due to the little plow back there. Is that possible?

    Yes , you are correct. The 'plow' at the back of the pad is the set for toe-in .If you 'zero' this you will achieve bliss [according to Kool stop].So simply put , install, put the 'plow' just touching the rim, and the rest of the pad square against the rim and tighten , away you go.
