you should get away with either 25 or 30mm bolt on adapters.

As long as it isnt too low, 245s will be fine.

30ml spacers could be a little for 245 tyres if the car is lowered, maybe a better option would be to go 25ml spacers. As for where to get them any tyre shop should be able to order them for you I'm fairly certain that bsa make there own bolt on spacers. Even if you have to tell them it's for an unregistered show car or something.
