Yes both should fit. I run 15 spacers on a 8.5 front ET35 so front 100% as 225m are 8j fronts. Rears are a little bit tighter but im 99% sure they will fit.

Got them off Cyba in the US who are sponsers on here, cost about 100.

Typically up to 15mm on stock wheels can be ran. But it's always best to measure to save your self the pain of saying "man I went to aggressive" or "well let's try again that's not aggressive enough". Below I've embedded a video we did showing some of the best methods for measuring for spacers.

They will definitely fit without problems on rear, I'm running 20mm Spacers on rear with 225/40/R18 wheels.

15mm on the rear of a e92/93 would give an offset of ET24.

No chance - Cloud cuckoo land + box of frogs spring to mind!

Your wheels are 18" MV3 wheels,the thread is about 19" 225 wheels.

So I'll stick with my "strongly worded" opinion

Ian you know more than me, but he is only running a 9j wheel not a 9.5j so surely they will just sneak on if running a standard 255 tyre? Would it not be similar to a ET29? REady to be flamed haha

You won't get flamed Nick

I'll only make a comment on something I've tried or experienced.

I tried 15mm spacers on my 225's fitted with 255/30/19 tyres on stock suspension,the tyres rubbed.
I did the same with 12mm spacers,and whilst the tyres didn't rub initially,with rear seat passenger/s,or undulating road surfaces they also rubbed.

Just because 18" wheels with 15mm spacers work on an E92,it doesn't always follow that a 19" wheel with the same spacers will also work.

Yes,I do know that the profile of the tyre on an 18" wheel is normally 40, and the profile on the tyre of a 19" wheel is 35

I won't bore you with the maths

I was meaning would you not save 5mm for the wheel not being as wide. Any how like you said you tried this setup so thats good enough for me
