Wheel spacer which width do you recommend?

Sorry if someone already mentioned this but which size (width) of wheel spacers work best?
I have the choice between
15mm
19mm
21mm
25mm
30mm

I was thinking of 21mm any advice? I have the 19" gloss black 6 (double) spoke wheels (style6010) on standard 265/65
Any pictures of cars with wheel spacers are welcome. Smile

These look great. Really cool but they do look a bit on the edge. I don't have the "extended" wheel arches and I need to stick to German law. So it looks like 19mm will work best here.

The Front wheel track is: Air suspension 1,706mm and - Coil suspension 1,704mm
The Rear wheel track is: Air suspension 1,702mm and - Coil suspension 1,700mm

So.. The best solution is: 20mm on the front and 25mm on the rear.

I’m using aftermarket wheels with an offset of ET25. This offset puts the outside face of the wheels in the same position as would a 16.5mm spacer. I also have 275/55R20 KO2s.

The wheels were installed without the wheel arches, and I’ve since installed the wheel arches. The arches add only ~5mm of width per side.

Both before and after the installation of the arches, both front and rear wheels are inboard of the outside of the arches in all three usual suspension height settings.

In fact, I was after a slightly more aggressive look, and am now looking for 15mm spacers. Please let me know where you found them!

Cheers,

Joel Thumbs Up
