Help me stance gurus

What size spacers do i need to get flush with staggered LTW's? I currently have 12.5mm on the front but I want to put those on the rear and maybe get some 15mm for the front. Tire sizes are stock (225/45/17 and 245/40/17)

15mm in the front won't do much. That's what I'm currenty running.

You're gonna need atleast 20mm.

But Jay will know best since he's the wheel and tire master

Flush is subjective. You can't get that last few cm of fitment because of your spring rates and tire sizes, but if you just want to fill out the fenders a bit more 20mm front will do the trick. The 12.5mm is fine for the rear, depending on how rolled your lips are.

8.5s all around would look A LOT better, of course. Especially with some 235/40s and more spacing...okay I took it too far.
