Exclamation Effects of running front&rear spacers on suspension and handling.

I am thinking about going from stock sport package to 19x8.5 ET40, 19x95 ET45 CSL reps.

If I put 5mm spacer on the front and 10mm spacer on the rear I will have the following setup:

Front:
5mm - 7mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 5mm

Rear:
10mm - 11mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 15mm

Any thoughts? I really want someone knowledgeable or with experience running spacers to go over any issues with them. Anyone have anyone they know?

Regards,
Michael
