Quick m359's offset question!

Hey guys, i've been trying to understand but for the life of me still have trouble with offsets and spacer sizes. I'm currently running a set of avant garder m359's zcp reps. I believe the sizes are 19x9 18mm offset and 19x10 25 mm offset (these are vendor recommended sizes right? I'm trying to get some spacers to push it out to flush. I previously had oem 220m's with 12mm all around and felt that this was PERFECT. Can anyone help me of what size I should run of spacers? Thanks, guys

The AG wheels are already more flush than your 220 wheels with 12 mm spacers. The 220 wheels are 8.5" with a 29mm offset. A 12mm spacer effectively gives you a 17mm offset. The 220 wheels however are 0.5" (12.7mm) narrower. End result is that the 220 wheel with a 12mm spacer sits inward relative to the fender by 5.35mm compared to the 19x9 AG wheel with an 18mm offset

+5mm in the from and +12mm in the rear...tire dimensions will also be a factor. But start from there.

I am running mine with a 15mm spacer in the rear and nothing on the front.
