Well after seeing @ct200fsport's post of his 2012 I pulled the trigger on the same +15mm front and +25mm rear spacers.
I did end up going with a set off ebay.

Only issue we ran into was that the front OE studs ended up sticking out too far not allowing the OEM F-Sport wheel to mount, so we shaved them to fit.

end result

please don't mind the dirty dirty, it had just finished raining.

Have been on since march. There is still about an inch gap with these. I was hoping to be closer but it's ok.

How long have your RS-R Down Springs been on, looks like there is still some wheel gap?

Looks great with the spacers! Would I have to shave the OEM studs if I went with 20mm spacers? BTW, did you use loctite?
Not sure if you would with 20mm spacers.
They sill had at least 1/4 in. of the stud sticking out.
I did not use Loctite.

We did re-torque after a few days of driving.
After looking again I would probably go with 30mm rear spacers.
The 25mm is still somewhat in the fender.

for me, I think it's to much, but if you wanted poke, then you'd definitely achieve that.

So do the 15mm's on the front have you setting perfectly even witht the fender? I dont want to have to cut the front studs in the event I change the wheels. Will 25mm's make them set out too far in front? What about the 20mm's? Has anyone determined if those will fit without having to cut studs? I have factory F Sport wheels on my 15. Sorry for all the questions. Just want to make a decision this week.

I have a 2012 F-Sports with Trident Wheels and did the exact same setup with the OP.
For the Trident Wheels, no stock studs had to be shaved or cut with the spacers I purchased from eBay.

The void between the where the stud goes in was deep enough for the studs to be protruding out 1/2 an inch.
Hence, the surface seated very well on the spacer.

Dimension of the Spacers:
(I am not selling or recommending any ebay sellers here. Just showing this is what I have purchased and the quality seems to be good. Not responsible for any car damage or physical damage by putting on the spacers. Use this as a guide.)

Front +15mm

Make sure to notice the 1/2 stud that is sticking out.

My opinion on the REAR is probably the same with the OP.
I would get a +30mm which should fit but not certain if it is going to rub.
The front is ever so slightly more outward than the rear.
I hope this will put an end to what fits?! kind of questions.
Make sure to use locktite for the spacers and then retorque the spacers about about a week.

Thanks for this info! I was curious about whether or not a 15 or 20mm might require grinding down the studs, but it seems it might not. I recently bought 2x 25mm spacers to test their look on either the front or back, then I plan to order the other size as appropriate, but it seems like 25mm might be too big for fronts, and possibly not big enough to get a flush-look in the rears.

Oh well, I'll put them on and see. For the price, I see this as a cheap/easy way to upgrade the look/stance (and handling-wider base) of the car, and mechanics I've talked to have said it's safe.

I have the stock 17x7 wheels and I haven't taken them off the car yet, but I imagine they'll have the same cutouts that should allow for some protrusion of the stock lugs.

I hope you’re buying hubcentric spacers otherwise you’ll regret it.
Don’t see why you have to put the wheels out further and put strain on the suspension parts, but your choice.

Yes I went with hubcentric 25mm spacers and I plan to torque everything to spec. It's only less than 1" and it shouldn't really add much increased stress on anything. But I feel like the wheels, especially in the back, look way too recessed from the fender so it takes away from the look of the car. I don't want to drop it any lower than the (already pretty low) stock height, and I'm not ready to spend $1k+ on new rims and tires, so for the time being, spending $100 on 1" spacers to make my stock wheels flush with the fenders is a relatively simple, cheap, and safe (according to my mechanic, when quality parts are installed properly) option.

That’s good to know. I must admit the rear does look like there’s not enough offset.

Looks dope. How accurately are they flushed with the fender? It may be the angle, but it looks like it pokes out a bit in the rear. Also, any rubbing?
The front is pretty straight flush, the back maybe pokes out just a tad, but I'm much happier with the look over stockk. If anything, I preferred a bit of poke over a bit of inset, so I'm perfectly happy with it like this.

Note, my rear spacers were actually a 1.5", so if you can find a 32mm or something it might look more perfectly straight flush.

This thread has helped me quite a bit. Went with @Forceful1 recommendation on the 32mm for the rear while using the same 25mm up front. I don't plan to lower my daily driven car, no rubbing so far but have yet to hit any crazy dips/bumps/turns.

Love how the 32mm sits with the 215's at the moment, but I think 205 tires with a 35mm rear and 25mm fronts would look better IMO with the stock ride height.
