PICS | Testfitting of 10mm Spacers With 19x9.5 ET32 On E90

Earlier this summer I had the chance to try on one 10mm spacer on the rear of my e90. Forgot about the pics until now.

I have 19x9.5 ET32, and adding the spacer makes it ET22. The tires are 265/30/19.

Personally I think it's a bit to much without rolling the fenders, but 5mm would fit great.

If the fender is rolled and 10mm spacer is installed, will it still rub with 2 or 3 people sitting at the back?

^^ Depends on the quality and extent of the rolling... Minor rubbing needs minor rolling, but an extreme fitment like OP may need to be rolled a second or third time. If you have your own roller, that shouldn't be a problem

Hard to say, as I didn't drive the car with the spacer on, I just moved it a few meters. But my guees is that it could work with enough rolling.

The spacers wasn't mine, I just had to try one on my car real quick.
I was just installing them on the e91 seen in the background of the last pics.

Don't roll your quarter panels. Shave them. It comes out much better, buys more room and doesn't have ANY possibility of distorting the shape of your panel.

Agree with the shaving tip. That's what I did on mine.

after seeing these pictures and doing some test fitting of my own there is no way my rear wheels are et39. A 15mm spacer pretty much put the entire tire out side of the wheel well. A 10mm spacer was also way too much, measuring straight down from the fender with the 10mm spacer the wheel stuck out like 3-4mm. Coilovers set as high as they would go and it still rubbed. My wheels have to be like et35ish.

I'm lost going to try 5mm. At this rate I'll have a closet full of spacers.

How does one with 265/30/19 on the rear use 5mm spacers for 9.5" wheels that have a beveled bore? Reading somewhere I understand the remaining 5mm-6mm of the wheel hub lip that remains after the spacer is installed is not sufficient to provide adequate centering of the wheel on the hub, hence leading to possible wheel vibration. Anyone have any solutions? I wanted to go with 10mm but don't want to roll my fenders so 5mm is what I'm considering. Is it even worth going 5mm?

I have 2 sets of 1-day used BMW wheel spacers (15mm & 17.5mm) by ECS Tuning for sale - $190+free shipping in domestic US!! . The set also contains 20 of the recommended extended conical lug bolts (12x1.5x45mm; black), also purchased from ECSTuning.

I bought these for my E90 335i sedan but then got my original spacing measurements wrong since I have custom wheels/tires. As a result, these spacers were too wide for my application, causing the tires to rub on the fenders when I tried to drive. They were immediately removed and so they are literally still brand new!!! These spacers are manufactured by, and were bought from ECS Tuning, a leader in the European car performance industry. They are of the highest quality, detail and precision.

Fits the following BMW models:

E23, E24, E28, E31, E32, E34, E36, E38, E46, E52, E53, E60, E63, E64, E65, E66, E70, E71, E83, E90, E91, E92, E93, F01, F02, Z3, Z4. Also fits Mini Cooper and Mini Cooper Countryman

Don't miss out on this great offer and save $$$!! Free shipping in domestic US!!
