What Size Spacers should I put on my 08 335i [pics inside]?

I have a black 2008 335i on stock suspension with 19inch bmw performance 162 wheels and was wondering how to approached putting spacers on as I want to have a more aggressive stance. The tires are the same size all the way around as I bought them from the dealer that way. Should I put them on the front and rear or just the the rear and what size? All help is greatly appreciated guys, Thanks for reading!

what are your tire sizes? And what size are you wheels..

If your wheels are staggered they should be 19x8(+37)/9(+39) tire sizes should be 225/35/19 and 255/30/19. You want and aggressive stance all the way around and not just in the front or back so you would want to put them on the front or back...or the wheels won't look even.

Spacers are a cheaper way to get a more aggressive stance. Depending on your tire sizes, 10mm-15mm spacers in the would look really nice and would be pretty flushed. I can't remember the exact specs for flushing out an e90, I know they have a little more clearance then the e92.

Best advice ^^^ Also, if you want to run even more aggressive, roll your fenders and measure again.

Do you have an XI?

Any plans to drop the car? And as ACEE mentioned it also depends on your tire sizes as well.

But just from seeing other pre-lci's with agressive fitments I have seen et's as low as 20 in the front with a 8/8.5 inch wide rims and et's as low as 20 in the rear with 9/9.5 inch wide rims.

Taking the dimensions that ACEE gave earlier you could go do 12mm spacer in the fron (which would give you an et of 25) and a 15mm spacer in the rear (to give you an et of 24). The wheels should sit pretty flush at that point.

ok hopefully this helps you out. Basically you don't want to over or under due how much your wheels flush from front to back. You want them to be as close as possible. IMHO the last pic is perfect. More guys are thinking the first pic on the second row is acceptable when in all actuality it is not. When you flush/hellaflush, you do both front and rear tires not just one.

Our spacer video should help you a ton, I've embedded it below. It lays out (in living color ) how to measure for spacers both conservatively and aggressively

nailed it lol, you dont count in my book til your front matches the rear. Until then youll just be one of those guys that post a pix of the rear flush or how fat the lip is which anyone can do.
