Spacers rubbing

so i just installed spacers on my 335IS... i went 15mm in the front and 12 mm in the back.. the back looks great but still has room to go more, BUT the issue is in the front. Right after I installed them, I drove the car home and the car started rubbing bad on the turns. The guy who installed the spacers said we can go to a smaller size on the front. Im thinking to place the 15 mm in the back and put 10mm in the front.....Has anyone placed spacers on a 335IS model and what size did they place? will the 10mm give me any issue in the front?

Worthless without saying what wheels.
Stock ride height.
Pretty simple though.
If your rubbing in front you need to downsize.
You don't want to crack the fenders.

yeah 15mm sounds like a lot up front but it all depends on what wheels and ET ect.

You could put the 12mm up front and 15 mm in the rear. It's impossible to know if that will work without wheel specs.

265/40/19 is an enormous tire. Are you certain that's what you're running?

Your rear tyres are not "little different from stock" and you need 265\30\19 on rear to live with 225\35\19 on front.
And write rim style or model if you don't know width and ET.

Your rear tires are too sizes too tall. In fact, you're 9.51% over your stock tire sizing. Recommended is within 3% of stock. Before you worry about spacer sizing, perhaps get the right tire sizing.
