What are the biggest spacers you can run on an E92 335i without rubbing? Stock wheels/tires, without rolling fenders

Just make sure you are getting larger than 10 mm spacers and you won't have any vibration/cracking issues. The stock hub has to be able to fit in the center of the spacer completely.

Otherwise do a stud conversion.

They are one and the same, H&R is the manufacturer, their spacers are called TRACK+ Spacers.

So if I go with 5 mm spacers it will vibrate. I have the 18" 313 rims (8.5/9.5) and I'm not sure if it will sit flush if I go with 10 mm. Does anyone here know. I can't seem to find the offsets for the 18s either.

Assuming the OEM 18" 313 are like the other OEM 18" wheels, they're 18x8 ET34 and 18x8.5 ET37.

yea, remmib is right. They are definitely not 9.5 rears. I'm thought they might be 9 inch rears but it may be 8.5 rear 8 front like he said. I'd just search the forum because it has got to be posted up somewhere.

Regarding the 5 mm spacer, here's what I am almost positive will happen. I know that the stock hub is longer than 5 mm. So I don't see how it is possible for another hubcentric lip to protrude out from the spacer for your wheel to sit on. You will likely be forced to use the stock hub to mount the rim...and the hub will have less seating area because it is going through 5 mm of spacer. So you'll be left with maybe 5 mm total of hub sticking out from the center of the spacer. You may be able to properly mount and torque the rims down but I know a number of people experience problems with anything smaller than 10 mm. And if you're rocking stock rims, you can certainly go with 10mm at least. I am on 12 mm for example on all four corners with the oem 225M 19" wheels which are 8" front 9 " rear.

The RS Technik (Push to the Edge) Lightening Pockets Design is one of the lightest out there and lighter is the key when you are on the track or just daily driving. Also the special Chamfered edges design on each piece allows quick and easy installation and removal. =)

I could be bias however.....

Thanks for the valuable info. Will defn do 10mm and 12 in the back. I read ppl were having issues with the smaller spacers in the front but I didn't understand why.

Also I'm interested in doing Muteki (http://www.weaksauceparts.com/store/...at=2173&page=1) closed end lugnuts. Will the bolts that come with spacers work with these closed lugnuts or do I have to go with open extended lugnuts.
