I finally gave up trying to fit the et20 rears, went back to et23, now zero rub even fully loaded. I may try going back to et21 with some spacers in the future but we'll see.

As far as the drop, it's zero gap but also no tuck at the moment. Might go a little bit lower though.

so that means you have 10mm spacers in the rear.

5mm spacers in front. I had 10mm spacers up front on the old car, but with the new ST V1's it's lower and 10 just seemed to aggressive for the sad plastic fenders on the e92.

In these pics 5mm spacer in the front, none in the rear (19x9.5 et20)

However, the rear rubbed like shit. So now I'm running 19x9.5 et33 with a 10mm spacer for en effective offset of et23.

I think I can go down to et21 with a12mm spacer, but for now et23 is fine as it doesn't rub at all.

IF you have an e92 you could do a 12mm spacer and not rub at all, that would give you an offset of 26 - plenty of room there, you could probably go 15mm with just a roll.

Wheels are holding up fine - my old set had a few chips though.

LTBMW spacers ( I dunno if they're branded or if they mill them themselves.
