Front wheel spacer advice of 328ix

I have a 328ix LCI e90 sedan with Apex Arc-8 18x8.5 et38 offset rims running PS2 225/40 tires in front. Rears are Arc-8 18x9.5 et35 with 255/35 PS2. I will also add I have the eibach prokit springs/koni yellow setup. Rear fender tire clearance looks great. Fronts on the otherhand appear sunk in a bit in comparison to the rears and think the fronts could use wheel spacers. Any one out here have this setup? Curious to know what you're using and without any fender rolling or rubbing.

Measure your gap, purchase the appropriate spacer.
