help on big spacers ! baby stance

Love my miro 111. Love how the volkswagon guys stance these wheels. Looking to do minor stance. I am looking for advice not your opinion. Dont tell me its stupid, looks dumb, rides like shit. Thanks !

What i run now

18x8.5 et35 with 12.5mm spacers 235/40
18x9.5 et20 255/35

What i am looking to do

18x8.5 et35 with 25 spacer final et10 215/35
18x9.5 et20 with 12.5 spacer final et7.5 225/35

Wheels are not that wide. So to my guess with a slight stretch i can get away with running this setup with oem alingment. True or false?

I'd honestly run a 15 mm spacer in the front and since you have a pre LCI e90 the rears should work with the spacers you have planned. But most "stance gurus" would say eff spacers and get new wheels with aggressive offsets lol.

I run 12.5 in the front now. So 15mm wouldn't make much a difference .

Yes your right . People are running 12's in the rear of there cars with low offsets. My car is my daily so an insane stance just won't work.

Also in the stance world spacers are a cars best friend.

My mistake I read it wrong you want to run a 25mm spacers. Well then it should work I personally would be worried about running a spacer that wide but it would work. But in the stance world that I've seen it's all about wide wheels, crazy offsets, stretched tires and dialed in camber spacers shouldn't be needed. Not trying to argue with you. I use to run spacers on my old set so I know where your coming from. As for OEM alignment I'm thinking its okay but you might need a slight rear fender roll.

keep in mind that oem alignment have a wide range. I had -3 degrees of camber in the rear of my e92 and bmw aligned the car to factory specs with the -3 degrees. I would possibly suggest running a 235/35 in the rear to get the stretches matching.

If you dont have anything good to say dont say anything.

As i clearly stated i Love my wheels and do not want new wheels. Not looking for a huge stretch im not looking for crazy camber. This is my daily and just want a different look. So dont tell me eff spacers get new wheels.

Ok, so do it. What are you asking? You can't expect to run low offsets and not make adjustments to camber or fender.

My fenders are rolled and pulled. Im not toconcerned for the rear. My concern is the front. 8.5 is a small rim 35 is a high offset. So what im asking is if i add a 25mm spacer will it be to much ? Remember tire has slight stretch. The spacer i am looking at is a h&r hubcentric spacer that you bolt onto hub then you bolt wheel to the spacer.

How did you come up with that ? I know 25mm is equivalent to 1 inch.
