Preferred spacers on a 06 330i with sports suspension

Something that looks clean and aggressive. Keeping the stock rims and Is there anything concerning I should worry about with spacers?

I am running 15fr 18r on my e90 328i with sports, and with my staggered 17's, they will rub on the back if REALLY run hard through some whoops. Same with the 19's. Both oem rims and tires.
I am considering going 12fr 15r, but there are some hubs that won't allow 12mm spacers, I think. Or maybe it is 10mm. Need to figure that out.
15's on front work well enough, but I think it might look a little better if they were to be tucked in just a hair.
Also, you got a coupe or sedan? As I understand it, coupes have slightly less room out back.

I have 12mm front and rear Macht Schnell spacers and they work fine on the hubs. It's some 10mm with the lip that are known to cause issues. I think 12mm works perfectly in the front, but I'd like to go wider in the back. I don't think 18 would rub on my 330i, at least not with the camber I have and the tires I have. I've also got the sports package with 162 wheels, Conti DW tires 255/35/18

I've been using 18 mm Rogue Engineering spacers in the rear for a little over two years with 162s and have never had a problem. My car is an 06 with sport package.

Are the macht schnell the best for the money? Are you happy with the quality?

Do you happen to have a pic of what it looks like by chance?

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?

go 20 rear, 12 front. I went 18 rear, 12 front and feel the rear needs just a bit more poke to match the front.

look up my previous posts, I have pics. 2006 330i sport pkg 162 wheels

18mm in the rear rubbed on my car. Then again I have Michelin PSS which are a tad wider than normal. Ended up sticking a 12mm back there for now and it looks fine to me. May go 15mm rear, 12mm front but not sure. e90 on 162s with ZSP.

+1, I have the same set up. Wished I'd done 20 rear but BMS didn't carry them.
