Wheel fitment / wheel spacers

Wheel fitment / wheel spacers
Looking to get some useful insight as to where I should buy spacers and what size I'll need.
I currently own a 97 Grand Marquis GS, and tried bolting up a set of wheels from a Crown Vic (believed to be 03-05), however once I bolted them on I realized my upper ball joints were against my tires and stopping me from being able to actually bolt on properly.Bang
So I'm curious as to what size of spacers I'd need to compensate for the tires to be usable, as well as if there is anywhere in Canada I could find a set of four spacers for a relativity cheap price, without going so cheap that I wound up with a cracked spacer out of the blue.
My MGM currently runs 215 70 15s, and I'm unsure of the tires on the crown vic, but the rims are 16s and match up height wise with the stock setup.

RE: Wheel fitment / wheel spacers
I got my spacers from and they are 1.5", get hubcentric spacers so the weight isn't being supported by the lugs alone.

These were the wheels off my '05 CVPI that I wanted to keep using since they already had snow tires on them.
Tire size should be fine if you use 225/60-16 which was stock on the 16" wheels.
If you could find them, wheels off a 1998-2002 would be a bit better since they don't need spacers.
