Need Help on Wheel Spacer Size

Hey whats going on i have a E92 335i coupe lowered on H&R Sport Springs with stock 18" Staggered 189s (low pros) im having a hard time deciding on what wheel spacers to get..i heard
12mm Front 15mm Back would be perfect...my question is would i experience some Rubbing??


This 335i i found has 12mm Front 10mm Back and it looks like its lowered too and it looks like its cutting it alittle close

Search the wheel and tire section. I'm positive your question has been answered before in that section.

So much is dependent on the wheel offset and the profile of the tire.

Best thing to do is measure the clearance you have from the vertical plane of the face of the rim, to the beginning of the inner fender.

I have e90 with sp, 15mm in rear and 12 in front. My rear does rub when I hit a big enough bump. I been looking to see if its doing damage to the car or tire and I don't see any damage.

Thanks for your help guys I'll be ordering 12mm Front and 18mm Rear apparently they'll fit just fine on H&R Sport springs
