Spacer question.

I've looked around, but can't find exact answers. I'll measure the car, but I want some back up as well.

What size spacers have guys been putting on in back? I've got an 09 E92 M Sport, stock wheels and tires. I was looking at 10mm, but does anyone think 12mm would be too much?

Thanks for the help.

I use 5mm with 10 in the front. This is for my 42mm offset wheels. I have a lot of negative camber in the front so 10mms in the front work well. This is for the track.

I reduce camber up front when not on the track and keep the spacers on when I put the stock wheels back on.

I think 12mms would be fine with 35mm offset in the back.

Man, with your set up I'm not sure that applies to well to stock. the 42 - 5 is bringing you back to 37, stock, eh?

To the OP: Most people seem to go 12 - 18. I measured mine and had 22mm clearance (255 tires on stock 17x8.5 wheels). Of course you want some wiggle room for camber changes and tire flex.

But in my post I say how I keep the 10s ft. and 5s rr. on when I put my stock wheels back on.
