    8.5Jx19" won't need spacers with any coilovers as far as I'm aware. I ran that size rim with a 235/35 and had no clearance issues on the suspension - just on the arches!

    No spacers needed unless you want the wheels out that bit further
    Currently driving a 55 plate Ford Mondeo ST. But as Arnie once said...
