Ordered 15mm spacer for front wheels.. Wrong size?

I put e46 M3 fitment wheels on my pre lci e90. Fronts are 19x8.5 +35 with a 225/35/19 tire(a bit stretched) and rears are 19x9.5 +22 with 265/30/19 tires. THe rear is pretty flush and I love the look. But I ordered 15mm spacers for the front according to the measurements I took. Fronts desperately need spacers. But by adding 15mm spacers to the front it will become a +20 offset. Did I make the wrong choice in spacer size being the front will have a +20 offset and rear has +22? So Im guessing the front will stick out more then the rear? Is this not going to look good? Or will this setup be fine?

your front offset is not related to the rear offset. +20/22 setup is fine. if anything, that setup is better looking than most people's setup on this forum. lol

Well thats good to hear. I thought if the front was lower it wouldnt look right. But I guess it is such a small difference anyway. Thank you for your input.

you might need to have those v1s set low to tuck them. I have +30 on my 8.5s and i dont think i could go any lower offset without rubbing.

definitely post up pics when you get them on. e46 and e90 19in m3 wheels are my favorite rims.

I apologize, I misinformed you. THe wheels I have on are M3 fitment, not M3 wheels. THey are avant garde 310s off an e46 M3. But once I get the spacers on Ill still post up pics.
