Default yet another Wheel Spacer question ZCP (NOOB)

Hi,

I've done some research but I couldn't find what I was looking for.

I have 19" ZCP/CSL wheels and wanted to fill the gap and make it flush.

The suspension is stock as of now but will get lowering springs from eibach or H&R

So here is my question.

since these spacers are just for look (for me that is) what is the max width that I can go with without rubbing the well (don't want to roll fenders) or sacrificing drivability.
This doesn't mean I wanted to go with the thickest spacer but just curious.

I was thinking either 12 or 15 but would these make any difference in looks?

what are the cons of getting a spacer? (assuming you got the correct fitment)

Any comments will be welcome.

thanks in advance

what size are your tires ? that has a lot to do with if you'll rub or not.

personally i like the 12/10mm setup but depends on your tires

Its the stick 19" size so I guess 255/19/35 and 225/19/40??

when you meant 12/10mm does that mean 12 front 10 rear? or does is mean 10 all around or 12 all around?

thanks for your help
