Question about spacers

I installed 15mm spacers on my 325i in the rear. The look great, but the spacer on the passenger side rattles. I took the wheel off and checked it and all looks good, but still the rattle. I know it is the spacer because when I took the spacer off and drove the car, no more rattle. Has anyone else had this problem and how did they solve it?

Thanks

what spacers do you have? Are they hubcentric? What about lug bolts, are they of adequate lenghts? I have Rogue Engineering spacers on mine, absolultly no issues

I have the same and it is only on the passenger side where I get the rattle.

make sure the lug bolts are tight. I have RE hubcentrics without any issues. ARe you running stock wheels, or something bigger than 18's? Did you de-rust the hub prior to installation? Did you place grease on first?
