What Size Spacers E92 325i (N53) M-Sport running 313 OEM rims...

Ok so i have just had some 313 rims fitted and will be getting a set of eibach pro kit springs fitted.

Now I want to see should I also get a set of spacers fitted and if so what size.

I know when I was on my 225 rims with M-Sport suspension I was recommended 12mm front and 15mm rear spacers. Would it still be the same now, or 12mm all round? I would like to avoid any rubbing

Advice welcome as I am a bit clueless on this stuff.

Also any particular type / brand of spacers I should consider?

I have 15mm on the rear with the 313. Looks great, no rubbing even with full load. (Did have 20 originally, but they rubbed like mad)

12 front & 15 rear seems to be suggested generally any reason why you are thinking 10mm?

Garage List
Why not go for 15 all round and thereby keep the relationship between front and rear track as it left the factory..?

That would seem logical.

I am a bit clueless on this to be honest hence my post?

I was concerned 15mm would cause rubbing on the front when on full lock? Seems on the rear 15mm works. From my reading around 12 front and 15 rear seems to be what gets mentioned a lot, don't know the reason why?

Perhaps wheel offset if a factor also?

So any final opinions on size?

15mm rear seems to be a given.

Front?

I'm interested in this - as I'm going to get spacers from my 313 as well!

So is the conclusion 15 all round is fine with oem 313 with run flats?

15mm on front seemed to poke the front tyre for me (when measured) and also with load I've heard it runs on full lock.

No reason 10mm over 12mm, might go for 12 as its been suggested.
