How Big of Spacers?

I'm currently driving a 03 lancer oz rally with 18x7.5's on them with 215/35/18 and was wonder what the biggest spacers I would be able to get away with before I run into any problems like rub or anything else? Going to be changing rim size to 17x7's 205/40/17's also thinking about adding camber and lowering springs in summer.

Lower your car and change your camber 1st then put it on the ground let the springs settle and use a measuring tape to see.

No one can tell you exactly which spacer to run. But if you don't roll your fenders, how wide do you want to go?

The offset of the rim factors into how big of a spacer you would need (if any).

Best way to do it is put the wheels on first then measure it. You won't know for sure until then. Or if you get the right offset you wont need spacers.
