12mm or 15mm Spacers for Style 230

I'm not sure which spacers to get 12mm or 15mm. I want to get the tires to stick out but i don't want it to rub. BTW I'm just getting it for the rear.

I have the E92 335i with stock suspension. I have the msport package so I'm guessing i have the sport suspension. And my rear tires are the FK452 265/30/19

I know you said you only wanted to do the rear but I'd do 12 up front 15 in the rear.

Thanks. I'll probably do the fronts later on, just can't at the moment. So 15mm will have no problems, like rubbing?

Whatever size you go with, be sure to get extended bolts to compensate for the size of the spacer. Some spacers will come with extra lugs so you won't need to worry about it. Anyway, I would go with the 12mm spacer

get a 20mm spacer for the rear, you will rub a bit over crappy roads but you must have your fenders rolled...it will look sweet though...

i have +33 in the rear of my work wheels but added a 15mm spacer which makes me +18 and i love it. looks so much aggressive and flush.

Offsets don't mean a thing without widths.

Style 230's are 19x8 et37 19x9 et39

Thanks but i think 20mm will be way too much for the rears. Also i wont be getting my fenders rolled. I also searched around and i got mixed answers. Some say 12mm some say 15mm

15mm in the back will put you around the same as 19x9.5 et30 you won't rub.

I put 12s front and back. I am dropped on coils and the rear rubs. I think 10s in the back would be perfect. But I think I am going to roll the fenders instead.
