I didnt space the stock rims, i spaced my new rims i got though. In order to get the wheels to look flush you need a 20 mm spacer on each wheel, i got the H&R kit that comes with extended lugs. There will be rubbing, maybe not on the stock rims as mine are 8 inch wide rims not 7.5 inch.

Maybe by going with 15mm per wheel instead of 20 you can get away from scraping but they wont be flush, but im sure way better than stock. You could also cut away plastic from the inner side of the flares and roll your fenders to create clearance.
