What size spacer do I need for a 285 tire?

I will be putting 285 tires on the rear and probably 265 on the front. what size spacers would I need if i want to sit flush with my fenders?

I'm running 285 RE11 on 19x10 ET15 rear..they sit pretty damn flush. I was rubbing like mad originally, I raised the car and adjusted the camber ..still rub on some major dips now


p.s you should probably list your wheel set up

Used a 10mm up front and no spacer in rear when we did this on a MY11 ZCP.

Obviously, this will depend on tire brand also.

For stock tires, I would recommend the 10/12mm combo.

Of course, go with the Macht Schnell kits

Use the 12/15 combo for non-ZCP on stock tires, this is the most popular choice. For those that want to be a bit more aggressive - use the 15/18mm combo.

As always, everything is in stock.
