The spacers I got off ebay were pretty tight as well, had to use a rubber mallet. They felt more secure than the ones that are kinda loose. When I removed them to sell, I had to use a screw driver to pry them out.

Try sanding your hubs if it is so tight that you cant even force them in, probably rusty with a bunch of dirt stuck on it.

But you missed my point... Why do they fit perfectly on the front
hubs?

I'd recommend breaking out the wire brush and attempting to clean the rear hubs. Hopefully that helps!

What brand are the spacers? A lot of spacers don't have enough space to accomodate the hub lip on our cars.

no brand, but they are hubcentric with lip from ebay,
the shop had another set of bmw spacers and they had tried to put those on and its the same way as if the hub is slightly larger on the rears
but on the front hubs spacers fit great
