A couple of weeks ago I bought a 2019 Audi A4 40tfsi AVANT Black Optics.
It has the lovely Audi Sport 5-V-Spoke 19" 8.5j ET40 245/35/19 wheels (on sport suspension)

I want to buy spacers to get the 'FLUSH' look.
What size would be perfect?
I tried to measure and I think 12mm on the rear and 10mm on the front would get it flush (flush with the tyres which have little rim protector lips).

Is this correct?

On a local secondhand marketplace I've seen four A-brand 12mm spacers, 5x112, 66.5, with the correct longer bolts. Would 12mm give me a flush look or stick out (I don't want that)?

Thanks,

Hold something flat against the arch and measure from the tyre sidewall to that, the distance is the spacer size you'd need to get the wheels flush.

Thanks. I hang a small cord/rope with a small weight, taped to the arch and when the cord hung still, I measured the distance from the tyre sidewalls. Front 10mm and tears 12~13mm.

Would 12mm rear and 10mm front be best, or better 10mm on all wheels (performance/handling/looks/etc)?
