25mm looks best, but will cause rubbing on front and rear. 20mm is the best choice on stock wheels if you're not willing to do any fender work.

Thats lowered on Down springs and 20mm spacers, if I was to do it again I would use 25mm on the front and 20mm on the back

I have 23mm on the front. I originally went 15mm rear but the stock wheel studs bottomed out on the wheel and didn't allow the rim to seat on the spacer so I ended up with 18mm on the rear.
The car is also running on H-Techs.

For people using 20mm rear spacers on stock rims:

does it poke out or is it flush?(having a hard time seeing that through the pictures)

How about 20 vs 25 on fronts?

20 on the rear is gonna be the max if you lower the car. I have down springs and 20mm rear and over big dips at high speeds it rubs a bit. I wish I did 25mm on the fronts but just did 20

Which brand of 15mm spacer was bottoming out on the stock f-sport wheel?

I am planning to do 15mm all around on stock f-sport wheel and stock suspension.

I'd say be careful with what 15mm kit you get, because Charles from B2AutoDesign said his 15mm kit won't work on F-Sport wheels.

I got 20mm kit front & back from him, and absolutely love it. I wouldn't go anymore than 20mm in the back, you can do 25mm up front, but I personally feel 20 is enough.
