You'll need 10mm spacers up front to ensure the inside of the wheel doesn't touch the strut. This makes the front wheel et25. Unfortunately this'll give you horrendous reverse-stagger, meaning you'll need 15-20mm spacers for the rear wheels to make it look the same front to back.

Just saw the tyre size also, you won't be able to run too low up front as you'll probably get tyre / arch lip contact. 215/40 tyres for lows [y]
