I would just go for single spacers - maintain the hubcentric wheel mounting. Remember longer lug nuts. ECS has pairs that include longer lug nuts for decent prices.

Re: Pssttt (JRutter)

I just went for some H&R ones from Achtun!ng and went 5mm front, 25mm rear and the rear's ended up hanging too far out. Settled on 5mm front, 20mm rear and it looks great. I have stock S-line suspension and don't plan to lower too much. Achtun!ng said that going w/ anything larger than 5mm in front will = rub in corners.
Stock Titanium Edition wheels BTW!

Re: Pssttt (TroySico)

Had a set of H&R spacers on last summer on my Titanium wheels. Had 12mm front and 15 in the back. Looked pretty damn flush... No rubbing at all in front. The rear would rub on stock suspension going over big dips in the road. Lowering does not always mean you will run more. With my wheels now I find I rub no more on H&R sport springsthan I did stock, or not much more.
