So, I was thinking about running spacers on my 03 wagon to try and get a more flush look on my current setup. Since I am not knowledgable on this I'm hoping someone can help me out. What size spacers should I be looking at to run flush (or close) on a set of Enkei RPO2-J 17x7.5 +48 with 225/45 tread?

And if anyone has a set of spacers that would work for this setup that they are looking to sell, let me know.

A flat spacer, some wheels are too thick for 1/4" spacers, some will only take an 1/8". assuming you do not want to replace your studs.

from there, I like the 24mm Ichiba spacers. I have the 20mm but they stock studs stick threw too far.

A dude up here is backing out of his set I bought him. They are brand new, but I would like to get what I paid which is $280.. :? They arrive Tuesday.

10mm should probably be all you need, but you'd want to get hubcentric and with anything over 5mm, you NEED to get lugs with them. Only tricky part with 10mm is the hub lugs will be poking through the spacer enough that you'd need to verify you have enough dead space on the wheel mounting points for the hub lugs to comfortably tuck into the spaces. With 15mm spacers, my stock enkei's barely had enough clearance. I don't think I could have done 10.

I ran 15mm F and 20mm R Ichiba V.2 spacers on my 17x8 et 45 rota boosts on my '05 STi.

That's what I'd run again if I were to be in the same position.
