Cool Spacers needed for clearance or for looks?

I'd be more worried about suspension clearance if going with anything larger than a 9.5" width rim up front. Turner and a few others use a 10" rim up front and seem to have no issues.

I have a square set of 275/35 NT01s mounted on LTW5 18x9.5 ET35 with 12mm spacers all around effectively making them +23 offset wheels, and with Eibach springs installed, I have no issues although I haven't taken it to the track yet.

I'm thinking about this too. Wondering if you need the spacers for clearance or are they really for the better looks?

I'm wonding if I can stuff an 18" x 10" in front with 25 offset? Any ideas?
