I'm collecting the 20" Trident rims formerly belonging to The Hawk tmrw, was thinking spacers. Cost, size, make? Not looking at FD or carbon or anything fancy. Worth it? I don't like messing too much with the fine QP lines so if too dear I won't bother, but.....

I've also been contemplating for a while, as far as I can work out the general consensus seems to be 22mm all round or 22mm front and 25mm rear from a reputable company,
anything wider than 15mm would want bolt on hub,
H&R (ref. 4465670) are highly recommended at approx £300 all in.
I've seen a set of 22mm by others on ebay for £255, or 25mm Aliwhatsits from china for £150.
I'm leaning towards the H&R's myself but not yet hit the buy button.
to help with your search
M14x1.5mm thread
5x114.3 PCD
67mm bore

Have a word with Dicky, he seems to remove them from the cars he buys in and sells them in here.

It’s funny, I love the standard tucked in look for some reason on the GT. A little E type like, but that’s just me!

I'm kinda sorta in the same boat. I dont like the flush look, but a bit wider does look a bit more pleasing.

I had to buy spacers for 18 inch winter rims. Had to buy longer bolts, 20 euro's * 10. So in that regard, the bolt on spacers are not that expensive!

The QP has a much better stance than a GT as far as the gap between the wheels and arches but interested to see how a QP looks with spacers as not many don’t have these. The GT always looks odd so needs them but QP not so much.
