What size spacers for ET20 offset fronts? (photo included)

Hi guys,

My car is now lowered on Eibach springs with VMR V713 wheels.

The rear V713s have an offset of 22 (stock 23) and I have fitted 10mm H&R spacers giving the rear a great look.

The fronts are offset 20 (stock 29) yet still look too far inside the car compared to the rears and I want to bring them out with spacers but not sure what size to go with.

I see that 15mm spacers on the front are fine on lowered cars with stock rims, given the offset of my V713s is 9mm further out is it as simple as using 5mm spacers to give a better look?

5mm should do it
You're looking good as is, I don't know if i would do anything.
You're already 9mm extended from stock set-up so if you want to mess about 3 to 5mm is all you need

Looks good as is, but if you're not satisfied I'd go 5mm front.

to look as aggressive as the rear, you would need an 8mm, but I dont think those are available anywhere, so a 5mm is the most aggressive you can run on that. If there was an 8mm spacer, it would look similar to how the guys with 18mm front spacers look

18mm in the front is too much

I can't belive this car is a 4 door family sedan.
