I'm running 245/30/20 on 20x8.5 et38 square. I would like to know what would be the best size spacer to use without fender work being done. They just look to sunk in. I was thinking 10mm in front and 20 mm in rear. Would this work without rubbing issues? Has sport suspension. 2007 335i

The best way is to measure the gap. Since the wheels are mounted measure from the tire to the inside fender lining and that will give you the best idea of a spacer size.

I actually did measure starting at 10 o'clock then at 12 then 2. Ranged from .6875 to 1" at 1 o'clock. I am just not sure what will rub and what won't. I do like the flush look though. I have read many post on here about measuring it. But where to measure from is different from one person to the next. Thank you for responding.

First use a ruler with Millimeters on it. Measure from the outside tire sidewall to the inner lip of the fender. Measure both sides, they should be about the same but good to double check.

Check your gap, measure, and purchase the right spacers for your needs.
