Question about spacers and new rims.

So I'm about to purchase a new set of rims, specifically the alzor style 313 reps from ECS. I am currently running stock 159s with a 12.5mm spacer in the front and a 20mm spacer in the rear. I want a flush, relatively aggressive stance, so I would like to keep the spacers if possible. The alzors are offered in both a staggered an square set up. The staggered setup is 19"x8" in the front and 19"x9" in the rear, while the square can be 19"x8" or 19"x9" all around. Honestly, I would just like an opinion on what the best setup would be, and if it would be possible to keep the spacers to the best pf everyones knowledge. Thanks!

Product Details

19x8 front, 19x9 rear, ET35 wheel sizes
5x120 bolt pattern
72.6mm center bore
This staggered set offers an aggressive appearance while helping put power to the ground.
5-spoke, split design
Machined face with gunmetal barrel and accents
TPMS compatible
Conical seat lug bolts required.
64mm center cap included.
27lb weight
Cast manufacturing process
Alzor wheels are VIA certified to meet JWL technical standards to ensure exceptional quality, performance and safety.

on a 19x9 ET35, the spacers you have would result in some 'poke', for sure in the back. It brings it out to the equivalent of ET15 which would definitely stick out. A total offset of about ET22-25 I think is about what you're after on the rear. On the front you might get a little poke with that setup, but not too bad.

Thanks for the info. Im thinking of just moving the 12.5mm spacer to the rear and keeping the 20 for if I ever decide to go back to stock.

That's a good idea. Try out the combinations though there's no harm in that. I'd probably rock 12.5 mm in the back and 7.5 mm in the front on that setup.
