Spacers on E90 m sport

What is the best set up?
Car: 330d M Sport (pre Lci and on standard m sport suspension) fitted with 19" Mv4 wheels (235/35/19 on fronts & 265/30/19 on rears.

Was thinking 15mm all round??

I have 20mm on the rear and 10mm on the front.

10mm pushes the front out flush with the edge of the wheel arch. Obviously 15mm would push it past that - but that is maybe what you want?

I have the same setup as you mate

I've done some searching to make your wheels sit flush, I think the best setup would be 10mm front and 20mm rear

Then I saw NJ1161 selling 30mm spacers, not sure if this'll cause rubbing ? or if the wheels will stick too far out ?? anyone running 30mm spacers on an E90 pre LCI ? Also are 30mm spacers too far to space a wheel out safely

Thanks for help.

I think for me 10mm front and 15mm on rear would be the best?

Would 10/15mm suit MV3 wheels? Or even 10/20mm

A new set of wheels is way off at the moment, but have been thinking spacers may improve the look somewhat.

Thinking on the mv4 have a higher offset then mv3 so I'm thinking 15mm on the fronts too might be ok?

As mv3 fronts are 18x8J ET34 and mv4 fronts are 19x8J ET 37

Looks good, would the concept be the same on a e90?

Are the H&R kits the best on the market?

H&R or Eibach. Most important thing is to make sure the spacers are hub-centric.

Raf there are a few measurements you can take that make figuring out exactly what spacers will work for your car and your style. We did a video showing how to properly measure for spacers that'll probably be a bit of help to you, I've embedded it below.



Also keep in mind that not all spacers come with the proper length wheel bolts, any time you use a spacer you'll want to change to extended (vs stock) wheel bolts to allow the proper connection of the bolts and the hub of the car.

Will push the fronts out too far and rears not out enough. Stagger the spacers.

Mine with 12mm front and 20mm rears plus lowering springs circa 25mm front and 10mm rear



More pics of my Edition M Sport in my garage
