What spacers should i get

I have a 330i sport package. I was thinking about 15mm in back and 10mm up front. Any thoughts?

I don't know about the size, but my suggestion is you need to stick with a good brand that gives you longer lugs with the spacers. My recommendation - Macht Schnell.

Rule of thumb, measure twice, buy once. We've put together a nice video showing how to properly measure for spacers which should help you dial in your spacer, I've embedded the video below.

Spacers easy to put on? Should I put them on myself, or have a shop do it?

Spacers are very easy to install. As long as you're comfortable removing and reinstalling the wheels.

E90 330i ZSP 162's. Just put these on today. 12mm front, 18mm rear. No issues with rubbing. I didn't want to go crazy, just a little more aggressive look.
