Default R98's: what spacer size needed to "flush" ?

I just lowered my car on swift springs and koni yellows, so not much of a drop, and I plan to put the R98's on when I finish polishing the lip, I haven't decided in a tire size yet I'm leaning towards Conti DW tires. I know there's a lot of factors when making a wheel sit flush, and while it doesn't have to be exact, I would like to be close.

Just looking for an estimate for which sizes are needed in the front and rear and would I have to get longer bolts? And if so, where would I source down the longer bolts?

Thanks!

Oh ok, I wasn't sure if 15mm spacers would fit because I didn't think the r99 had the same offsets as r98?

Niks,
With Dragon so close my usual parts supplier has been working under who knows how many cars since last Monday to answer those questions. I'll try to light fire under his ass in morning & let you know what comes up.
Right now my best guess is:
