Default Wheel spacers for D3 S8

Alright guys I recently fitted 25mm hub centric spacers on rear & 20mm on front
On my D3 S8 with stock 20x9j alloys with 265 width tyres, but not happy with rear as still not flush with arch would it be safe to go upto 30mm on rear with correct radius bolts ?

i had 20mm rear & 15mm front and looked great..

it all depends on the ET of the wheels you use, but your already on the limit to be honest..

Have look at photos attached of my car with 25mm rear & 20mm
Think I might as well leave as it is.
