Spacer questions

I'm consider putting 12-15 mm spacers on the back of my 325i sport with stock wheels.

Will this increase the camber and/or cause increased tire wear? As is typical, it wears the inside edge of the back tires even when aligned exactly at spec. What will the net effect on handling be?

spacers do not affect your alignment

Car will handle better because the rear track is wider...I can attest, feels like I'm much more planted with 12 mm spacers out back

Spacers will push your wheels farther out towards the fender thus creating a more aggressive stance. It will not increase the camber or cause increased tire wear unless you are going so aggressive that your tires are rubbing against the fender.
