189rims stock sport suspension 265 Super Sport. Spacers possible?

Any of you guys run 189rims on sport suspension with the Michelin super sport 265 and spacers?

I would like to have it more flush but not sure what size spacer i can use.
Tried to measure it but the inside of the fender is curved not straight.

Any help is appreciated.

Not sure what size 189s are but I ran stock 162s (8.5ET37) on 265/35/18 with 12mm spacer lowered on coilovers with no issues at all

I'm almost 100% sure the rear style 189 rim is 8.5" ET37. I'm running 265 PSS on a 9.5" ET35 rim with no rubbing. So if you put a 15mm spacer on that would equal what I'm running. You could always just run 12mm to be safe though.

Why not run what Rodny has above

I run, 25mm (R) and 10mm (F) and I rub on heavy compressions in the rear only- Passenger side only
