HELP! Spacers?

What's up guys. I am looking to run some spacers to poke the wheels out a little bit but I can't decide which to go with. I've included a few pics.. I'm thinking 12 on both the front and rear but opinions would be helpful. Thanks again!

I'm just worried about 15 because it's slammed in the front and I don't want it to rub.. but when I put my hand under there it seems like there is a lot of room

I did 12 on the front and 15 on the rear. Front looks good, wish I would've gone wider on rear.

I'm running 17.5 inch wide rims in the front with 225s and 18.5s in the rear.. No idea what stocks are but just as a point of reference

Edit: 255s in the rear sorry forgot to mention that

What are your offsets and tire specs? I don't see how some people here are giving blind advice without knowing what you have to work with.

Turner Motorsport 17.5mm hubcentric spacers in back are perfection with 18" Style 197 wheels. I'm running 255/35/18 Bridgestones on them. No issues whatsoever with rubbing.

I really wish I knew.. TBH i bought the car with these wheels and i've never known the exact specs on them. but they are 7.5 wide in the front with 225s and 8.5 in the back with 255s. Im just afraid of rubbing.. My friend put 15mm's on the rear of his 135i and it was rubbing horribly. It SEEMS as if I have a lot more room to work with on my 335i but its also lowered so its tough to tell what they are gonna do (especially on the front)

I am running 12mm all around, looks very good to me.

19x8.5 with 255 tire at rear, I can see alittle more rock hit marks on the rear quarter panel.

On my 2011 335d M Sport, I installed 12mm front and 15mm rear. Immediately started getting fender rubbing. Had fenders rolled. Rubbing REDUCED but not eliminated. Wider stance throws more dirt onto the car in the front and on the back bumper.

I'm taking them off and selling them. Not worth the hassle to me.
