Fitting Spacers on GTS ZCP Wheels

Hey guys I tried searching for this but I cannot find anyone with the exact setup I am trying to do.

Just wondering how large of spacers I can run on both front and rear with this setup as of now:

Stock Suspension (possibly KW sleeve kit or eibach pro springs in future)
OEM GTS ZCP 19" with AD08's at 255/35/19 and 275/35/19


Can I go 15mm in the front you think and 12mm in the rear? This is what I have been told would be the most I could go without rubbing issues from a local wheel shop....

Thoughts?

I'm sure others will chime in. I have a 255/275 setup with my Blizzak LM60 winters on the stock ZCP wheels. I currently am not using spacers, but I ran this setup last winter along with 12.5mm spacers all around. No problems up front, and only slight rubbing in the rear on big suspension compressions over certain dips/bumps. The Blizzaks have a fairly rounded shoulder, though, and these same spacers and ZCP wheels with the square-shouldered OEM Pirelli PZeros caused a lot of rubbing in the back. So the success of it probably depends on the shoulder design of the Yokohamas. I don't use the spacers in the summertime with my 19" GTS wheels and 255/275 Michelin PSSs because I'm pretty sure they would rub in back.

A 255/275 setup on 19" wheels is a very common upgrade, but maybe not with spacers...

I`m using the same set up , same tires and wheels and try 15mm in front and 12mm in rear but got a little bit of rubbing in the rear only the front was fine but was not too crazy about the looks of that square tire in the outside of my front fender whenever i looked at my car from the front of it, so now i have 12mm front and 10mm rear just make sure your spacers sit flat against the brake rotor if U see a gap you most likely get a vibration

Since you have the 12mm coming, you can try them on both front and back before deciding on the second set.

Go with AD08 275/30/19's and 295/30/19's and you don't need the spacers

I'm running that. Will still need front spacers. And since he's only on stock susp or springs, will probably still need rears too.

This is what I am thinking. Going to put them on the rear first, hopefully tomorrow and I'll throw some pics up.

no rubbing issues with the 12mm in the rear so far, fitment seems to be perfect. Thinking I will try 15mm in the front and see how it looks next.

I could have told you that the 12mm would rub in the rear for sure with the 275/35/19 with a mild drop. I have experience with running 10mm spacers with 265/35/19 ad08 on my zcp wheels in the rear and it has a very slight rub on huge deviations on the fwy when the suspension compresses completely.

For the fronts, I ran 255/35/19 ad08 + 10mm spacer with a 1.5 inch drop (kwv3) and it rubbed at 3/4 lock both left right. Its super hard to run aggressive tires on this car without rub on a stock alignment.

I ran ad08 255/35/19 F + 10 mm spacers and ad08 295/30/19 R + 0 spacers for about half a year and I got so sick of the rubbing I just ended up getting stock sized ad08's and I've been quite happy with the grip and performance.

I have the same experience.

My rear rubs as well with 10mm rear spacers on stock sized 265 rear tires when lowered. I think if you want no rub with stock rear tire size, the max you can go is 5mm.
