Wheel Spacers Style 72 18-8/8.5

Sorry for the thread, i've been googling but have not be able to find anything. I have a 330 coupe with style 72 rims, 18x8 with 225's and 18x8.5 with 255's. What are the widest wheel spacers that can fit? Thanks.

Check your gap, and purchase the right spacers for your needs.

I would run a 12mm in front and a 15mm in the rear. With a 255 rear tire you may only be able to get away with a 12mm back there also. But as recommended from VMRWheels check the Gap.

I used 12mm in the rear and 10 up front on a lowered car.
Anything bigger will have a good chanche of rubbing in the rear.
Up front you can get up to 20mm without rubbing.
