Rear wheel spacers with 18" snow set up

I have the 19" Factory staggered set up. I now have some 8.5x18 original alloys and snow tires en route. To maintain the stock appearance in rear, I was thinking of a small rear wheel only spacer.

My thinking was 25mm should pretty much get the job done .. any opinions or good/bad experience ?

Thanks

David

I bought 18x9 et45 TSW wheels for my snows to replace the 19" staggered. The front wheels match the 19" offset within 3mm. I calculated needing 15mm spacers in the rear to match the 19x9.5. got H&R 15mm psacers with 45mm long bolts and looks better. But I can't tell any difference in handling. Just appearance.

Wow, that's a lot of spacer. What's the wheel offset?

Great thread guys !

I am going to test fit before I decide on a thickness. I would rather go on the cautious side and was leaning toward 20-25 mm.

Thx again,

David
