New wheels; need spacers

I'll get some pics up here tomorrow morning after I finish washing the baby, but just wondering if someone can give me some feedback.

Just got some Eurotek lm's installed...these ones to be exact:
http://www.elementwheels.com/proddet...otek031995sale

Front wheels ET-35
Back wheels ET-33

Need some spacers to get the wheels a little more flush.
Now I'm not into the whole hellaflush shit, but I want to bring the wheels out a little more as they appear too tucked. 12mm all around? Don't want to have to worry about rubbing of any kind as well.
Thanks!

Oh, and the current tires are 225's and 255's.

Since there are many variables such as tire brand and type, alignment, suspension, etc., you should measure the clearance you have currently between the outer edge of the tires on the wheels and the inner edge of your fenders for a better idea of what spacer size to go with. It's difficult to know which spacers would work best without rubbing without seeing it in person and measuring.

Below is a diagram which should help you with measuring for spacers. Keep in mind you'll also need extended lug bolts which complement your spacers, the stock lug bolts will not allow the wheel to be properly secured to the hub. THIS thread should also be very helpful.
