Confirmation: Ohlins RT with Apex Wheels

Can someone confirm that I'll need to run a 5mm, 3mm or no spacer with the Ohlins RT coilovers and 18x10 et25 Apex wheels?

I see that spacers are needed for KWs, but can't seem to get good info on the Ohlins RT and this wheel setup.

EDIT: anyone else notice the Apex Wheels site is down?

On a 1M with Ohlins R/T and 275/35/18 tires on 18x10et25 ARC8s I do not need a spacer. This is with -2.5 camber, incidentally.

No need for spacers with that set up

thanks for the quick replies. I wanted to avoid the 5mm spacers in the front, looks like I won't need them.

bumping this thread up since I have the same question.

18x10et25 275/35/18 with Ohlins R&T. Does it need spacers up front?

dj_dub said he needed it with his setup, where the two replies here said no..

It's really going to depend on what tire you run. The reason some say it rubs and some say it doesn't is likely because of the tires. So, you might want to ask what tires people are mounting to get a better idea of the whole rim/tire combo.
