Front Spacer Advice: 255/35 19 Michelin Pilot on OEM ZCP Wheels

Looking for a meaty flush fitment up front using OEM GTS wheels 19x9 ET31. What spacer would give that look without rubbing. I am lowered with the tires just 1/2 inch above the wheel arch/fender. Thank you in advance.

Thanks for the link. It cleared up a few questions regarding clearance. When calculating the offset+spacer width ex. ET31 + 5mm spacer does that equate to wheels further from strut? I'm perhaps overthinking it but I really could appreciate some clarification.

Yes the wheel will be farther from the strut. I run 12.5mm in the front on my ZCP wheels.

Normally when you go +1 on the tire I recommend to go with a 12mm on the front.

With a 255/35/19 tire you may rub if you go beyond the OEM 31mm offset. People have complained of rubbing with the AG 359s which have an ET of 18mm with a 255/35/19. It can be hit or miss...you have been warned.

I was running the AG M359 '19 with the 18 offset and 5mm spacers combined with 255/35 19 tires and did not rub, although I did raise my ride height a bit due to concern for clearance. I wanted to the the OEM GTS wheels with the ET 31 offset but could not grasp the offset rule until recently.
