What Size Spacers for SLK55?

Hey guys,

Ok so I'm lowering my SLK55 with eibach and I want to throw hub centric spacers on the stock wheels to bring them out and give it a more aggressive stance. My question to you guys who have done this or know about it, what size spacers for front and rear? 10mm, 15mm?

Comments appreciated.

Thanks
Danny

can do 7.5- 8mm in front ( dont want your tire to rub on fenderline ) and 10mm in the rear to have the rear stick out more... you will need new lug bolts as well
