Question Need spacer advice...

http://lasvegas.craigslist.org/pts/2216614125.html

Thinking about picking these up as just some beater rims... Question is, what size spacer would i need to mount them as im pretty sure that i would run into issues if i just tried to mount without spacers..

I have a base model 07 e90 328.

thanks!
EDIT: anyone know if 16x7 et11 will fit??

Sal, for the 09 335i E90 with stock 18inch wheels, 12mm spacers work well and are totally safe with regard to rubbing (I have them). If you want a little more aggressive I'm 99% sure 15mm will not rub in the rear, unless you have some kind of unusual suspension setup. I'm on BMW performance yellow springs, slight drop.

For the OP, I have no idea. Aren't there nice 17inch rims available on the forums that are inexpensive?

We need to know the offset, but if they're e39 wheels you won't need spacers.

Normal e39 offset is +20.

Don't see a problem in the rear, front might be a problem though.
