Measure the outside of your tire to your fender. That will tell you how big of a spacer to buy. There are some good threads that have been recently posted that have some good pictures to better explain how to do this.

Measure the distance from the top of your tire to the inner fender, and purchase the appropriate spacer.

I have the same size and offsets on my wheels. I didn't use spacers last summer, but I'm thinking when I put them back on that I'm going 15mm front and 10mm rear. I love the BMS spacers as well! I'll post pictures when I have them put on.

whats "aggressive" for you? what tire sizes are you running? do you have your fenders rolled or planning to get them rolled? suspension is stock or lowered?

This is a simple way to measure the size for a spacer. Just measure the size from the top of the tire to fender and purchase the spacer.

How much of a gap should be left? Say for example the gap is 20mm, would getting a 15mm spacer be perfect, to look as flush as possible, without any issues?

I haven't done but I would go all the way until just before the inside lip of the fender.
