You should be fine.
I just ordered 15mm front, 10mm rear spacers and am running 245/275 on my OEM ZCP's. I am also dropping my ride on some KW V2's. Haven't received anything yet, but based on my research there should be no rubbing. I guess I’ll find out very soon

The answer is that it depends very much on the wheels, tires, and your alignment.

Hey, I have OEM CSL wheels and just purchased a set of PSS9 Coilovers. I am running 245 tires in front and 275 in the rear. Would it be strange to run 10mm spacers all around? I do not want any rubbing at all, and the drop on the coilovers will not be very aggresive.
I have been told to go 10mm in the rear and 12mm in the front, but I kind of wanted to go 10mm all around for simplicity sake. How would that look? Keep in mind my fronts wheels (OEM CSL) are already 0.5 inch wider than the usual ZCP wheels.
Any input at all would be appreciated!
