Wheel Spacers?

I put LS1 brakes on the Limited and am having clearance issues with the larger calipers and 16" GTA wheels. They rub a little and I need just a tiny bit more room. I hate the idea of spacers but it looks like I have no choice here. Any recommendations on some good 1/4" or less spacers to use? The spindle/hub assembly I bought from FLYNBYE came with longer studs so there should be plenty of stud left even with the spacers.

Fronts I used third gen camaro steel spaces (between an 1/16 to an 1/8 thick). The rears I used eBay billet spacers to kick the tires out, no rubbing issues but wanted a wider look.

I just ordered some 5mm (3/16") billet hub centric spacers from ebay. Were the steel spacers you used like this?

If so, I'll use those if the billet spacers don't work out. I want just enough spacer to safely clear the calipers and no more.

They were universal as there was a bit of a slot for each lug. I also got a 1" spacer for the rear with new lugs. Pushed the wheels out to where I wanted them. They are nice pieces, high quality at great prices.
