Wheels Spacers Question - My Current Set Up

Hey everyone,

I am looking into adding spacers to the front and rear of my car. My current set up is as follows:

1) Stock 189 Wheels
-Front: 18 x 8 (et 34)
-Rear: 18 x 8.5 (et 37)

2) H&R Sport springs (lowers front 1.3'', lowers rear 1.2'')

The look I am going for is a very flush look. I will have a friend roll the fenders if needed. Based on my research, I believe 12mm in the front and 15mm in the rear is the way to go. Is this correct? I just want to be sure before I buy the spacers.

Here are 2 pictures of my current set up:





As you can see, the wheels are not really flush with the fender. I want it to be flush and have a much cleaner look. Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

I would take a ruler and measure out from the top of the tire to the fender (and get spacers accordingly) That is what I plan/planned on doing if I don't locate wheels in 3 months)
