I've looked quite a bit and see 15F/12R is common but not with that wider rear and lowering springs. I'm looking for a pretty flush fit, I will not have passengers or extra weight in the car and if it rubbed on very large bumps I think I could live with it.

I want something safe but aggressive. Thanks for the help guys!
I'm dropped on Swifts with ZCPs. Here is my set-up:

12mm spacer front (255/35)
10mm spacer rear (265/35)

15F may be too aggressive, but you can try.
12R may be too aggressive. That didn't work for me even on stock rear tires.

Thanks guys, I think I might try 15/12 with some camber it's just tough because like these replies I get two slightly different answers.

vitalsigns even with just 265 you very bad rubbing on swifts? If so I guess there is no way that 285 will work.

I'm assuming you're doing 285/35?

I was thinking so but for the future I believe GTS sizing is 285/30 right. I also have only found cups 2s in 285/30 which is what I plan on moving to from the p zeros that are on there now.

Yes that should fit better. I have new wheels on the way and plan to run 295/30 in the rears.

I think there are minor differences car-to-car that allows some variation, even despite the same spring, wheel and tire set-up. I have no rubbing with 10mm in the rear, but rubbed fairly badly with 12mm. Others seem to be OK with 12mm in the rear. 285/30/19 has a smaller diameter, so it may work fine, even despite being much wider...I don't know, but that question has probably been asked and answered somewhere on here. In any event, EAS should know and should respond in this thread.

Mounted my 15/12mm with my 219M snow tires on stock ZCP suspension. The back is nice and flush the front probably could've added a few mm, I need to see what the front camber is set to, the aftermarket camber plates on the car probably would've let me squeeze an 18.

Hi guys what spacer set up would you recommend for a 2012 ZCP with stock 359M wheels, 245/35/19 PSS up front and 275/30/19 PS4S at the back.

Rear tyre is a random one. Previous owner must have fitted them for some reason.

I was thinking 12 all round to keep things even. The rears in particular seem tucked in as it is. Maybe it’s the tyres or maybe it’s running increased camber also, hard to say.
