15mm spacer for E92 w/ sport pak

I got an 08' E92 335i with the sport package and I'm runnning the RFs tyres. I want to fill in the gaps and plan on getting 15mm Macht Schnell spacers for the rears. What do you think? I think that's wide enough. I don't want to go crazy and get 20mm. Thanks.

If its the stock rims that comes with the sports package and the rims are the 18 inch, 15mm would be perfect, but if you upgraded to the 19in rims from BMW, it will rub and you would require the 12mm.

18mm and 15mm should be absolutely perfect!

I'm going to keep the from spacings stock. From what I've heard if you do do the front it's 5mm. I have them installed. They look good. I'll post pictures after I get home from a BMW meet.

I did get some minor rubbing last night but only when i went over some large bumps. I checked fender and tire and both looked fine. I suspect it should be no problem long term

I've got 5mm up front on my 09 E92, with M Sport package. It looks fantastic! BUT, I'm going to take them off and just go stock.
I may end up selling them on here for cut rate price.
In back I've got 12mm. I think it looks great, very close to what a stock setup should've looked like from the beginning.
