What do you think about front wheel spacers?

I want to keep my NEEZ for shows only so I'm gonna a set of daily rims. I still want the mesh look and really like the CSL / ZCP rims. I don't want to go for the replicas because the rear Miro looks like ass and the VMR has a lot of problem with balancing and finishes.

I'm looking to just buy the OEM E46 M3 ZCP wheels. The fronts are 19X8 ET47 so I'll have to run 15mm spacers to bring them out. The rears are 19X9.5 ET27. On stock XI 4X4 suspension, it should be fine without fender rolling. If I decided to lower the car down the road (we are only talking about 25mm front and 20mm rear drop), I might need to roll the rear fenders a bit.

What do you think?

Do it. I was torn on CSL Rep or ASA AR1 for my daily doubles and went against the Rep because its just not the same. Nothing beats the OEM ZCP looks dude, spacers should be fine.
