Spacer recommendations for my setup?

I have an LCI E92 335xi. It's lowered on B&G springs and Koni FSD shocks. I had an alignment done today with my Ground Control camber plates and set the front camber to -2.5. There's now a ton of space between the top of the tire and the front fenders. I have 19x8.5" +32 wheels with 235/35-19 tires. I did a quick measurement and it looks like a 15 mm spacer should get me closer to flush but not be too close to the fender. I definitely want to have clearance since you can't roll the plastic E92 front fenders. Does the 15 mm spacer with my setup sound like too much spacer to anyone?

I ran 19x8.5 +29 with 10mm spacer with 235/35/19. But I had my fenders rolled. I was lowered on kw v1. Stock camber. I rubbed with 15mm spacer though...

You should be fine with 15mm since you have -2.5 camber, but go with 10mm if you want to be safe. I don't think 5mm will make a big difference on how it looks, so I'd go with 10mm

I ended up buying a cheap carpenter's square at Harbor Freight to get a more accurate measurement. There was just about an inch from the tire to the inner fender lip. I went with 12mm BMS spacers. Pretty happy with the results. I didn't want to be super flush, just get rid of the excess clearance.
