What Spacers Would Look Best and Where to Get Them?

Hey guy's I finally decided I'd get some wheel spacers, especially for the back end, not sure if Ill get any for the front. My question is, what would be best/look the best?

I'm currently lowered on d2 coilovers.

Here is my setup

Velox Glide 17" 7.5 Rims

Nitto Neo Gens 215/45/17R


I heard that 5mm is the most we can do on our cars? So I was thinking 5mm in the rear 2mm at the front? Does that make sense? Also where would I be able to find spacers? 4x100 ?

I plan on lowering my car another inch in the back and 2 in the front, But I'd like to toss in the spacers in there and get the perfect stance.

You can see in the pic that the wheels are hiding :(

Give me a minute and I'll post some pics of mine. I only have 5mm ones to make some room for the Brembos but I believe it's a bit farther out than that.

5mm is the max you can do without extended studs...depends what ur looking for, you want flush all around?

Links don't work :(

And nope they didn't cone with spavers only centric rings.

Not sure if I want flush or a bit of poke. I don't think 5mm would do much?

And thankd swanman!

5mm is a hair over 3/16", so it's not much. 2mm I wouldn't bother with. If you want to be flush or poke, it looks like you'll need more than 5mm with those wheel specs. But then as mentioned you would need extended studs, unless the hub has indentations in the back for spacers with built in studs, like Ichiba's. If they make those in your bolt pattern, I'm not sure.
