E90 Spacers size with 162's

Hello.
I have a 2006 E90 330i with style 162 wheels (255/35/18) on the rear. It's an SE visually, but i was told when i got it (2nd hand) it had the sports suspension option from the factory, but i'm not too sure what this is or if it's lower than normal.

I would like to put spacers on the rear wheels for cosmetic reasons only. I see too many E90s with skinny wheels tucked under the body, i hate the way it looks, and don't want mine to look the same. I don't want to have to roll the arches though.

What size spacers would bring the outside edge as flush as possible to the wheel arch without any rubbing or rolling? 12, maybe 15mm?

I will definitely get the hubcentric shouldered ones!
I do sometimes have to be 5 people up too, but not often.

Thanks.
Tom.

Got 12mm up front and 15mm in the rear.

Looks much better than before.

On E90s if I remember correctly you can go all the way up to 20mm with no rubbing.

I have Rogue Enginerring 18mm in rear.
Getting 10 or 12mm in front soon.

Love them and no rubbing. Looks way better.

Could have gone 20mm in rear easily. Mine are almost flush
