wheel spacers advice ?

hi i'm a new member here and have a 996 gen 1 cabriolet with the porsche factory 18" split rims (same as GT3 style but 7.5J at front) and would like to fit wheel spacers having read up on other forums there seems to be different options some go with 7mm at front and 15mm at rear but quite a few say 15mm all round ? 
 
any advice from members who run spacers ? don't want any rubbing issues and know i need hubcentric ones with longer bolts suitable for Porsche alloys r14 ball type 
 
i would just go with 7mm-15mm but many say they regret not going more on the front so be good hear if anyone runs them ?

I added 5mm spacers to the front of my C4, not for aesthetic reasons, but to increase track slightly. More of a cheat to overcome adjustable coffin arms fitted to GT cars and the limitations to a front drive shaft.
It also helps to introduce some oversteer as suggested by center gravity. I purchased them from FVD.net.
 
The PET lists 5mm and 17mm spacers - not sure if OPC still sell these parts.
