    Assuming 8" wide? If so, leave them without spacers.

    10mm front and 12mm rear should get them pretty flush, 8mm front and 10mm rear if you want a little more clearance.

    And that's okay with then being et 45 offset ? How much is this going to cost me then also with correct bolts do I need to take in to counter that the oddest is Diffrent to standard so the bolts will need to be slightly longer on top of the spacer length if you understand thanks dan

    If nothing is rubbing, are there any advantages to adding spacers apart from aesthetics? i.e. Improved handling?

    I was going more for looks tbh bringing the wheels out to the arches will make it look lower and look a lot better
