Any Pics of 162 Wheel Set Ups with Spacers?

Sup Guys,

I'm considering getting some spacers for my 330XI. Currently I'm running on 162's and would like to see some pics of fellow drivers with the same rims running on spacers to help me decide which size to go with.

Thanks

I have style 197 (same size as the 162's) with 18mm rear and 12.5 up front. Looks perfect IMO.

Your car looks really good. Do you rub at all? Lowered? How's wheelgap?

Thanks man! I have Eibach springs and BMW Performance shocks, no rubbing. I did rub once on an onramp with 5 college guys and a full trunk... About 1 finger gap now all around after settling.

Thx, I did burger tuning spacers. Maybe a little vibration but nothing major. It's hard to say since I've hit the occasional pothole so could be the wheels themselves. Overall I'm very happy with the spacers. They came with the elongated bolts as well.

Stylebimma, love the whip. I am leaning towards 18 or 20 rears. What brand did you go with? Do you have any spacers in the front?

I installed some BSM spacers,18mm rear and 12mm front? I contacted RAD about some extended wheel locks for a staggered set up. Unfortunately they don't do staggered set ups. They stated I would need to buy two different sets.

Is there anyway around this? How have others done it with staggered set up?

I have 15mm in the rears, I think it looks better than the 17.5 I had. Also I had 12mm up front but they poked out to much. So rite now I don't have any spacers up front. Debating on getting 10mm spacers for up front.
