Spacer suggestions for Style 356 wheels...

I love the 'black chrome' finish on the 356 wheels. I'm not really a fan that they didnt go aggressive with the rears and only made them 9" vs the 8.5" in the front.

So my question is...and I hate math...what would be the correct measurements of the spacers to flush the wheels to the wheel wells? The offsets are +33 for the front and +44 for the rear. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Note...i plan to drop the car about an inch front and rear either with springs or coilovers.

I would recommend 10mm for the front and 15mm for the rears.

I'm pretty sure I've seen someone with 20" OEM wheels with 20mm spacers in the rear.
And I don't trust 10mm spacers, so I got 12mm in the front.

I've got 12mm front and 18mm rear on 19" (same OEM offset).

Here's mine when it was stock. I'm pretty sure 18mm will fit in the rear but the fronts will be fine with the 10mm

You could do 12mm/18mm as well, but that is slightly aggressive on a non-lowered car IMO. After you lower, that configuration would be better. 10/15 looks good with both scenarios IMO. Hope that helps.

Yes, 10mm and 15mm will be more suited for a non lowered car.
