Thumbs up ***Need your advice with Spacers.***

Guys Im thinking about getting some spacers, what do you guys think?
I have an e92 coupe with H&R Race springs. . .

Heres my rim size and info...

Front Wheels: 19x8.5, 5x120 +30mm offset
Rear Wheels: 19x10, 5x120 +37mm offset


Now.. my question is..
What size spacers and what brand is the best to go? I want that royal flush fitment but I don't want to rub!

We have a large selection of spacers available, however to make sure you are pushing the wheels exactly where you want them, I'd highly suggest measuring.

Use a straight edge to come down from the fender, then measure from the face of the wheel to your straight edge. That distance should give you a good idea of how far you want to go. I'd suggest to leave a few mm's clearance for tires, suspension travel, etc... to prevent from rubbing.

Garage List
Well, with if you roll your fenders you can go et25, with some camber you can go et22 with 19x10 and tire not bigger than 265. If you do not want to roll your fenders, max you may run is et 35( but then it won't be persay "Flush"!) Hope this helps.

I run eibach spacers, and they work great!

Did you ended up getting any spacer, if so which one did you get and any rubbing with that setup?

I wouldn’t recommend any spacers since the OP is just running H&R race springs and im assuming stock shocks. You'll have too much travel with stock shocks and you'll rub. If you were running coilovers on a stiff setting you could run 5mm in the rear assuming you run 275's. At ET30 You can’t do much with the fronts, since you wouldn’t want to rub and crack those e92 plastic front fenders.

My car is lowered a bit w/19" M6 reps et33, 265's with no rubbing at all (and no roll). It looks like I could even add a small spacer as well. Not sure where you got the max 35 number...

For that aggressive of an offset up front, I would probably leave it alone, but the rear offset I might want to add a 5mm spacer maybe even a 10mm spacer if I was feeling lucky
