Help On Spacers

Hi, looking to get some spacers fitted onto my 2011 BMW E92 325d, the wheels are oem BMW 19" 313 alloys.
What size spacers can I put on without getting any rubbing issues, especially the back when I have 4 people in the car. 10mm all round!?
Thanks in advance.

Thank you, I have been doing some research and it looks like I wouldn't be able to use 10mm spacers because of the hub lip being 12mm on the car!? Is this correct!?

Some 10mm spacers will work if properly designed for the longer hubs, ours as well as a hand full of others fit properly. But generally speaking you're going to go from 5mm straight to ~12mm spacer on the E9X
