Question Fitment experts pls help -- spacer size question

I'm on coil-overs, currently running Style 72's

F: 18x8 et 47
R: 18x8.5 et 50

wrapped in 235/40/18 all around

I have 18mm spacers on the rear with no clearance issues at all.

My question is ... would 18mm spacers be okay for the fronts for fender clearance???

If someone could give me a real quick explanation of how they figure this out it would be a huge help

18mm spacer will be perfect. It will bring it out flush enough with the fender before causing any issues with rubbing. You'll virtually have a 8.5 +35 stance.
