Spacer size question...PLease help...

I am running VMR VB3 19"x8.5 et40 and 19"x9.5 et38, ride has been lowered.....Want to put spacers to make it look better.
Now the rear is fine, but the front looks terrible after lowered....
Wondering what size of spacers I should get?

I think you should get 12mm. You might get some rub with the 15mm. Unless you raise it up a bit, you can get the 15s

So, I should get 12mm for both front and back?

Garage List
2007 e92  [3.50]
what size tire are you running?? I would say 15mm that would still give your RIM 6mm of clearance in the front but thing you would want to also do the back b/c the front is going to look more aggressive then the rear. I would say do 12mm in the rear and you have about 7mm of clearance for your rim in the rear. Your tire should take care of the addition space and with the natural negative camber from having your car lowered will help prevent rubbing.

Tires are 235/35/19 and 265/30/19..
So you mean I should do 15mm in the front and 12mm in the rear?
Thanks!!!
