New Rims/Drop Spacers?

I am planning on getting a set of the Breyton Race GTS 19"s Staggered for my E90 335i w/sport. Question is do I need spacers? I am also going to do a drop either Eibach Pro or HR (dont want to sacrafice ride quality too much) so probably Eibachs? Will I need spacers? If so what size? Do they go on front, back or both? Thanks.

What are the available offsets for the wheel? I am pretty sure Breyton will have the proper offsets for that wheel for the E90 so you will not have to use spacers.

AFAIK front offset is ET30 and rear offset is ET35 for 19" GTS, so no need for spacers.

Definitely no need for spacers with those offsets.

As far as lowering the car, some don't mind the stock ride with 19s while some thing the gap is enormous. I'd suggest installing the wheels first and seeing how you like it. If you think the gap is too big, get a set of springs or a spring/shock combo- H&R Sport Springs or the Koni FSD/Eibach Pro Kit combo are popular choices.

I bought the Breyton GTS wheels and I feel they could use 5mm spacers in the rear.
