Ideal spacer size

Hi all,


I recently bought and mounted a set of 18" CSL replicas (18x8 front, 18x9 rear) with 35 offsets and am wondering - what is the ideal spacer sizes I should buy (front and rear) to have the wheels sitting better than they currently are? (Please see the attached pic)

Also, what are good spacer brands? Thanks

i would definitely measure to be exact if i were you, but i think you could get away with at least a 12mm all around.

The mm distance from inner fender to tire face, i.e. How much room there is to push out the wheel until it would contact the fender.
