To my knowledge the ET value for the Spider is ET30.5 and the ET value for 156 is ET40.5.
So if your rims has the ET40.5 value then I would use 10mm spacers.
Be aware that some have used ET35 rims on their 156 so check what is written in the rim.

10mm spacers are not recommended as the hubcentric part won't be strong enough.

12mm are fine, but if you go to 15mm I suspect you'll be able to use your original GTV wheel bolts.
For reference the 156 wheels use 23mm bolts, adding a 15mm spacer means 38mm bolts which I think are what you have already.

I fitted 10mm spacers on the rears to space my GTA wheels, they are not hubcentric and are a right pain in the ass. 15mm are highly recommended.
