15mm Spacers Front/Rear

I am running my stock 18 inch 193M wheels with run flats 225/40/18 all around. I don't plan to switch these for a while. I am currently using 15mm in the rear and was thinking of adding 15mm to the front as well since i'm using a non-staggered setup. Would this work? Would it look OK? I can't seem to find any pics of this type of setup.

I am not lowered right now but i plan to lower it in the spring with a Koni FSD / Eibach spring or H&R setup. I had that setup on my E90 with the 15mm spacers in the rear and had no issues with an 18".

On stock 18" I've not heard of spacers being installed greater than 12mm.

I've got 12mm front, 15mm rear, and I think that it would take 15mm front also.

Can you post some pics of your current setup with 15mm rear? I have the same stock setup and want to see what the 15mm looks like.

The best way to determine the spacer size you need is to measure the gap. You should get a good idea of where the wheel will sit using this method.





Good luck!
