Another spacer question

I think I want to use RE 12mm spacers on my rear RS-GTs 19". On their website they point out that the 12mm is OK if the rim has a "chafered hole" as opposed to "an installed center ring", and if the "hub countour height is <11.5 mm." I really do not understand what this means and I'm not able to see this without taking off my wheel. Does anyone know if the RS-GT is ok for this spacer? They are reluctant at RE to give out phone advice.

I'm told 12MM is the way to go for my BBS CHs at 19x9.5 et40. And I'm also told if they were to crack as shown in the photo in the above link, that I should have nothing to worry about. To be safe, 15MM will be the way to go, but may introduce a slight risk of rubbing. Dilemma for sure.

Thanks. This really helps. So unless the xi has different hub contours the 12mm spacer is not appropriate. Then the question becomes: will I rub with a 15mm spacer on an e90 with 19" 275/30 rear wheels with an offset of 40?
