Start with 10', cut down from there if necessary. On my setup, (38F, 11 PSI, lines inside fridge, taps thru fridge door), 5' gave craptons of foam, 10' worked perfectly.

I can't get my kegs that close to the taps

The correct answer is: it depends on your CO2 pressure, which depends on the type of beer you're serving and the temperature you're serving at. I've made a calculator on my website to help you figure it all out. http://www.mikesoltys.com/2012/09/17...our-kegerator/
