I would also like to see pics of the OEM 5mm setup. Also interested in seeing 5mm with 10 mm in the rear.

Has anyone with a spacer setup noticed any kind of fuel economy (mpg) reduction after installing their spacers? If so, how significant?

As long as you don't go super wide >15-20mm and you remember to use high quality lug nuts of appropriate lengths there shouldn't be an issue. Well at least I have yet to have one with the level of driving I do, which to be fair is not that crazy. Even my track events are probably only pushing the car 8/10's at the most. I am by no means a pro racer.

I know there is tons of threads on this, but is there an ideal spacer size for an C2S? Or is it just personal preference? I've read everything from the OEM 5mm all around to staggered 12mm F and 18mm R.

I agree and have felt this way about getting proper hardware. I think Ill have this come this summer.

The HRE's on my prior 991 C4S were sized with what was effectively a 12mm front and 13mm rear offset (partially from a ½" wider wheel and partially from a more aggressive offset). I thought the offsets were perfect. Here's a few angles of those. There were no problems with rubbing despite the front offsets being higher than you normally see.

Very nice. 12mm up front looks perfect can, the back could do 15mm as well. Very nice HRE setup, classy.
