Default Spacers.... questions?

Hey all!

I'm looking to get some spacers to go for a somewhat flush look (at least in the rear)
Got my 2014 GS350 RWD on RSR super down springs with about 30mm fender clearance.
Thinking about going with a pair H&R 20mm spacers for the rear wheels to get that look.
Any additional purchases to make this work? Any experience/tips? Pictures?
Not extremely knowledgable when it comes to wheel spacers, so any input helps!

Thanks y'all!

The H&R website tells you how to measure. From what I've read, 25mm will require minor fender work.

i'm running 20mm in the rear and 15mm spacers in the front from b2designs (they are a vendor on here) with no rubbing on tanabe nf210 lowering springs. ill dig up some photos later for you. its pretty flush and looks great compared to stock. i originally had 25mm in the rear and 20mm and would rub under high speed cornering.

Im running the same... 20mm rear, 15mm front... with RSR Super Down springs. Deep bumps, steep driveways, usually while turning.. it can rub a tad.

Oooh, those are exactly the springs I'm running. Would love to see pictures!

Just ordered H&R 20mm spacers for the rear.

Do you guys think that 15/20mm f/r would give an adequately flush look with RSR downs? I wouldn't mind the wheels coming out a bit.

With RSR downs? Hell yeah. I'd almost go 20/25 f/r on the Downs.

does it look flush from behind? major difference or minor difference?
also, how low was the drop? i've heard super downs go extra 10mm+ lower on base GS' in comparison to F sport.

Good to know, thanks! I don't want ANY rubbing though, so I'd rather be a little conservative then risk any issues.. Hence the downs vs super downs for me.
