if you have the rims and tires that you are asking about on the car already and are just looking to purchase the spacers... then measure that gap between the tire and inner fender to find out what clearance you have available and buy a spacer that fits.

Well I did, but I'm still confused because I'm not sure I did it right. When I did it, I had a little over an inch maybe another mm from where the tire stopped to the fender. So realistically I'm they would just barely fit. I'm also on a non-sport suspension.

If you go too wide (flush) without sport susp it might look goofy.

If you're not sure if you measured correctly for spacers check out our video on "how to". It does a pretty good job of explaining exactly how to measure for spacers.
