19x8.5 Rear Spacer Question Need Help

So I'm used to a staggered setup of 19x8.5/9.5 but I changed it up because I got a cheap set of of 19x8.5 squared I'm not sure the offsets they maybe et35 or et40 I'll try and find out. Im running 235/35/19 tires, My question is what size spacers do I need to get my rear to be equal to a 9.5''(width to the fender wise) or maybe a little more aggressive if possible, I'm gonna get new wheels soon enough but the tucked look is killing me , so for the time being what can I do? will a 12mm be enough or do I need more, I did allot of searching and can't find a exact answer

Do 20mm if the offset is 35. If the offset is 40 I'd do 10mm up front and 25mm in the rear. That will put you around the same as 9.5 et28

Thanks for your response , they are et35 so I'm gonna get a set of 20mm spacers , that will bring me to a et15 rear, will I need to roll my fenders or do you think It will be alright since the rear tire is a 235

8.5 et15 is about the same as 9.5 et28 no fender rolling needed. If your willing to roll your fenders you can go more aggressive.

pushing them that far out is gonna look odd without a drop. i would have went with something less like 12-15 max
