Just ordered H&R Sport springs. What spacers to get?

I just ordered h&r sport springs and I'm not sure what size spacers or what brand I should get. My wheels are style 162 OEM and I'm not sure what the offset is. Should I be concerned about rubbing if the spacers are too big? Help me out guys. Thanks!!

You should be fine with anything up to 15mm. Measure up first.

Looked it up and my fronts are 34mm offset and rear is 37mm

So my car setup will be:
1. Style 162 wheels.
2. Offsets Front- 34mm, Rear - 37mm
3. Tires- Front- 225/40/18, Rear- 255/35/18
4. Stock Suspension
5. H&R Sport Springs

Now what spacers would look good and not rub.

When I said 'measure up', I meant like this:

As I said before - you'll be fine with 15mm or thereabouts. Here's pics of my car with 10mm front and 15mm rear spacers:
