    I run 18x9 ET52 with 245/40/18 tyres and 15mm spacers on front (so ET37) tyre sits flush.

    With 19x8.5 ET35 with 215/35/19 tyres I would say a 5mm spacer (so ET30) would sit flush.

    Agree, I wouldn't go less than ET30. I'm ET32 and very close to flush with a 19x8.5j wheel and a 225/35 tyre(changing to 235 soon)

    This is how the 5 mm looks when lower . I still think it can come out a bit wider .

    Space it out with washers until you're happy, measure the washers then order that size. Obviously don't drive with the washers fitted:-)
