What's the recommended spacer size for 4.4 with style 87 wheels staggered setup?

What's the recommended spacer size for 4.4 with style 87 wheels staggered setup and without fender flares running 20's tires 275/40 front and 315/35 rear? I'm not sure what maximum spacer size to get that won't result in rocks being thrown up the fenders. I've searched on this forum, but the recommendation is for 4.4/4.8 with fender flares - 15mm front and 20mm spacers running 20's 275/40 front and 315/35.

And the consensus is H&R DRA spacers. Now I just need to know the max size spacers to get for the front and the rear.

I had 20mm front and 30mm rear on mine but I do have the flares. Removed them after a week and stayed standard and the car drives so much better..
I would not recommend having spacers - it can look cool but that's about it.
Similar story when I had a 955 Cayenne with 22" wheels on. When I put the stock 18s back on (can't remember why) it was like a different car and drove way better.
