19' 230 Twist alloys - Spacer question.

Evening all,

I will be fitting my 19' 230 Twist alloys in the next couple of weeks/months. I'm considering using spacers for the wider stance both front and rear. I've got an E92 335D.

My questions are:
- What are your recommendations for front and rear? 10mm, 12mm?
- I often have a car full, will there be any rubbing with spacers?

If anyone has any pictures, please feel free to show them off!

Cheers,
Steve

ive got the 230 twisted's on my 335 e92 with standard width tyres,
and i'm running 12mm spacers at front and 10mm at back.
it brings the tyre out level with the body work at the highest point, bearing in mind the wheel should fold in slightly under suspension compresion.
no issues two up, but to be honest never been four up, but i cant see it being a problem.
will post pictures when get chance.

Look forward to seeing some more pictures.
