Rogue Engineering spacers question

Hey gang,

I'm looking to run spacers on my CHs (et40 on the rear). I have an e90 and am undecided whether or not to run 10mm or 12mm. I know the e90s have more leeway in terms agressive offset than the e92.

I will be dropping the car on H&R Sport springs and want a flush look w/o rubbing (with a full load) and w/o having to roll the fenders.

I'm contemplating RE spacers, but found this post when searching: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showpo...5&postcount=21

2 questions:

1) Should I go w/ 10mm or 12mm spacers and
2) Is anyone else having issue w/ the RE spacers not lining up with the hub contour?

Thanks!

With stock rims and tires, you should be fine with h&r sport springs with 12mm spacers. From reading previous posts, I would run 10mm with 265/19 tires.

I think the 12mm spacers will look perfect. I have m3 reps and Im using 10mm spacers with no problems at all. Ive had the 10mm on my oem wheels for a while too. no problems at all and they sit perfectly.the m3 reps are et35 in the rear yielding an et of 25 with the spacers. no rubbing, no vibrations.

I was running 10mm Rogue spacers (nett ET30) with same wheels setup (265 Ecsta SPT rears) on eibach pro-kit, no problem, fits and worked well. I was on 15mm Rogue spacers (nett ET25) before and I was rubbing on dips/other compressions, but it wasn't a bad rub (tire shoulders were touching the soft fender inner liners).

I suspected 12mm Rogue spacers (nett ET28) would've been ideal but Spool advised me to stay conservative and go with the 10mm to leave space for future suspension mods or wider 275 tires.
