Lug nut extenders for spacers

I have concave 162's 18" on my 330i with sport package. I am looking to get 10-12mm spacers in the front and 15-20mm in the rear. My question is at what size spacer do you need lug nut extenders? Is there anything else I need to know? Does anyone disagree with my Mm preference?

Thanks a lot guys I know these simple questions may be frustrating

Are you lowered? I ran 15mm on the rears on eibach pro kit. If I had the choice again id run 20mm rears and 15mm on the fronts.

But I just bought new wheels and tires so problem averted.

I am not lowered but the sport suspension seems to be lower with that package. I am thinking about going 10mm front and 20mm read. My question is if I NEED lug nut extenders?!

Anything over 5mm. I'm new the BMW scene but I believe 12x1.5x26mm is the factory sized lug bolts? So say you got 10mm spacers, take the 26, +10... you'll need 12x1.5x36mm.

You want new longer lugs. Because the factory ones won't be long enough, and even if they were, there will hardly be any thread screwed into the hub; dangerous scenario. Just make sure you get the correct new lengths and you will be good to go. I've ran spacers on my previous cars (A4 and S4) myself, do it the right, safe way, first.

The seller that you buy the spacers from should also have the correct longer bolt for the thickness of the spacer you're purchasing. If he doesn't, I'd look around his web site to see if he lists them separately, or shop somewhere else.

Yea the guy on eBay does. Thanks for answering my questions guys! I cannot believe I have not done spacers before. I knew something didn't look right

If you need lug nuts I'm selling a set barely used specifically for 10-12mm spacers probably less than 500 miles on them lol let me know! They can run pretty expensive and I'm willing to part these pretty cheap.

Here's the link:
