Most people use 15mm up front and 12mm in the rear. I've seen 15 and 15 but the rears seem a little too far out. I've heard of people using 18f and 15r but I think that is pushing it.

I've ran 18/15mm on stock 220 wheels and lowered on eibach. It looked great and no issues at all.

I have 359 with 15/12 and they fit fine. I also tried 12/15mm and they fit fine. Currently back to 15mm/12mm on stock comp edition suspension.

If running stock sized tires, 15mm/12mm combo is recommended.

There are lots of similar examples in this thread to reference from:

Totally depends on tires. Running 12mm F & 10mm R on 255/275 PSS's. I get a slight innocuous rub in the rear on large G loaded dips.

The H&R are easier to find in Europe. What do you think about these spacers?

Finally I ordered a Eibach spacers 15 front and 12 rear. Once they had been installed I am not happy with the final result. This is why with the zcp wheels the corner of the Michelin tyres goes away from the fender. W have modified the spacers to 12.5 mm front and 8.5 mm at the rear.
We did reduce the rear axle lip to fit the 8.5 spacer

I have a front wheel vibration at 140 kmh aprox, I don't if it is produced by the spacers or because the tyres are 4 years old. Whe have lowered the front spacers from 15 mm to 12,5mm, and I am wondering if this why they vibrate. I have little vibration at120 kmh before the fittment of the spacers, but now the vibration has increase. What do you think?
