Most wheel spacers are available in 5mm, 15mm, 20mm and 25mm. You might be able to use a 5mm spacer; with the spacer installed, at least 7/8 of a lug nut's thread should be used by the stud. To be on the safe side, you should use longer studs for any spacers that you use.

10 mm spacers are probably your best bet with OEM wheels/tires for the front; 15 mm for the rears.

To make sure measure the amount needed; put a yard stick across the fender opening and measure the amount in mm from the yard stick to the tire sidewall.

Wheel spacers are dangerous. Order the rim with the correct center offset for proper fitting.

For your safety, I'd recommend you to buy wheel spacers with wheel bolts.
if you don't want to buy new wheel bolts, I guess 5mm or 3mm must be the thickest size you have for your vehicle, but the truth is people buying these thicknesses are for clearing brakes.
wheel spacers under 15mm don't make too much change in appearance.
And I also recommend this kind of wheel spacers with lugs on them, and hub-centric that helps you to make a snug connection between wheel and axle hub, ensuring the hub carries the weight of the car instead of the studs or bolts.

and this is Nissan Patrol Y62 installed 38mm Wheel Spacers, front/rear 38.1mm (1.5 inches), PCD 6×139.7, CB 110


Hope my answer helps.

If you're looking for a reputable brand wheel spacer, BONOSS is the way to go. They're very well built and will hold up well. I bought a set used 3 years ago and they're still perfect.
