ST X Coilover Suspension - will I need spacers?

I'm about to order some ST X coilovers (made by KW, and basically a V1 according the them)

Anyway, before I bite the bullet and place the order, I wanted to ask a quick question from anyone running either the ST X's or KW V1's.

Will I need spacers to ensure the wheels clear the struts?

The reason I ask is that the product notes suggest a spacer may be needed with OEM wheels?

My wheel and tyre set up is more aggressive than stock, its as follows:

Front: 19x8.5 ET38 with 225/35/19
Rear: 19x9.5 ET33 with 255/30/19

When compared to the OEM M Sport rims, the new set sits as follows:

Fronts are 10.4mm closer to suspension strut and they poke 2.3mm closer to arch

Rears are 8.7mm closer to the suspension strut and they poke 16.7mm closer to arch

Can anyone advise, as I don't want to fit a spacer.
