I spoke to VAC the other day - their extenders are only for the front. The rears are in process, not sure when they will be available.

In theory, great idea for us LCI guys. I need 3-5mm and have not pulled the trigger because the rear extenders are not available yet.

The VAC guy also mentioned undue stress in the wheel bearings and possible damage to the wheel from lugcentric applications and did not recommend the smaller sizes w/o the extenders. I don't think it was a sales pitch either since they don't sell rears yet and that was the type of spacer I was shopping for.

I'm sure you already know this but it's 8mm further out in the rear. The front is the same.

OP: The wheels you have are 18x8 et 34 18x8.5 et37

With a 10mm spacer up front you'll end up at 18x8 et24 which is the same as 18x8.5 et30 you won't rub and the front will be even with the rear as long as you have a 10mm spacer in the rear as well. You'll probably just ignore this anyways but if you think an extra quarter of an inch makes your car look ghetto you have bigger problems.

there is a guy on e46fanatics that makes these but unfortunately not for the e90lci as it uses a different sized hub (inner) i believe.
