with a 18x8 + 38 wheel thats not a 5 series wheel but a 3 series wheel spec.

As for spacers, its hard to give a number since its mostly done for looks and what you think looks nice is different from other people. I'd personally put 10mm on the front and 20mm in the rear from a looks standpoint.. maybee even more in the rear, but I dont know how safe it is to put a spacer that large on. The rear of the E90 can really take a wide wheel. But thats me, I like a wide stance on my cars
