Spacers On E92 LCI 19" 313's?

Thinking of spacers soon on my 313 19's. Anybody running them? What experience have you had? I'm after something a little subtle, was thinking 8-10mm all round just to bring the wheels out a little more.

Mine is a pre-lci but I ran 10mm spacers all round with my 313's and they were perfect.

No rubbing and nicely bought out to the arch.

Did you buy extended wheel nuts when using spacers?

Anything over 3-5mm you will definitely need longer bolts.

I've got a stud conversion so have the extra length to cope with spacers up to about 15mm.

They say you should have at least 7 full turns of the bolt/nut to ensure it is secure.

The std bolts on my (pre lci) e91 were 25mm. Just measure yours from the bottom of the taper and then if you go up 10mm get 35mm bolts or whatever yours measure.

It's the b length in this pic
