    I'm on stock 18"s, ET54, 15mm spacers on the rear, had to remove a couple of arch screws and raise up a little to stop rubbing.

    Only ever catches now going up and down those full road width speed bumps or if the cars full of ppl.

    I reckon 10mm on the rear would be about perfect on a stock 18" wheel/tyre. Could probably go a lot lower then.

    Well, that's mine own observations anyway!

    12mm rear and 10mm front is the usual setup

    As Nath says if you don't want any rubbing 12mm rear and 10mm up front.
