Default Steel wheels advice

What size spacer would be needed to fit these wheels, I can get loads of part worn Track orientated tyres in 205/16 and 215/16 for cheap.

My guess is 12 mm. Could be as much as 19 mm. Offset (ET) of a 7 inch wide wheel for a 700/900 car is 20 mm.

A 15mm spacer would work well, me thinks
