Wheel spacers

I have style 159 wheels on my 08 335xi sedan. I did the measuring according to the directions I found thru the forum

However I can't seem to get an accurate measurement. Maybe I'm just second guessing myself or my brother who is sitting in the trunk is too skinny

So I searched and searched. Found nothing. Thought id ask you guys

What I'm leaning towards is 15mm rear and 12 front

Suspension is stock

Any help or reassurance on my options of size would be greatly appreciated

Thanks

Awesome. Thanks. I'll measure again with 4 or so 45 lb weights in back and see what measurements I get

I'll post pics up asap.

I'm in a love / hate with these wheels. Hopefully I can change that with the spacers
