anyone have 8.5/9.5 staggered w/ spacers?

I am running 8.5/9.5 staggered, offset is et35/et33 I believe.
I am running stock RFT tires on them, the problem is they aren't flush to the fenders. it's not because the tires are small, I think I have more rooms to play with. So I am wondering if anyone put spacers on a setup like me out there.
Please share

I'm running stock m3 219s. The fit flush to the fender and I've had no problems rubbing. 245's all around. I had the same problem when I first got my car, hated spacers on my car, the can warp easily depending on the quality of the spacer which then means a lumpy ride

I am real skeptical about running any wheel size other that stock as it will, in my opion, change the overall ride of the car. My question to you guys out there with an xi that are running staggered setups is that by running this kind of set up does it not over time ruin the driveshaft or impact the driveability of the car? I ask because I am considering running the OEM M3 wheels...feedback is greatly appreciated my dudes

I run the same wheel setup as you. I have added Eibach Pro Spacers. 12mm on the front and 15 mm on the back. Works good and looks amazing. Don't by cheap spacers. They will warp. You need quality metal. Eibach is right at the top of the list.
