Put the wheels on. Drop a weighted string from the top center of the wheel arch and let it stabilize. Then, measure the distance from the string to the sidewall of the tire. That will give you a good idea on how much spacer you want to have.

For reference, this is mine on et51 VW Salamanca wheels 17x7.5 225/45/17
8mm up front and 15mm rear. I could add more, but looks fine to me. Keeps dirty water spray from the road off the sides of the car, too.
