Help with wheel spacers sizes please

So I recently bought some enkei raijin 18x8.5 et38 rims with 235/40r18 tires in a square setup on my 2011 328xi. They're a bit tucked and I would like to use some spacers to make them fit a bit more flush. I tried to measure wheel gap his morning but idk if I did it right but I think I could get away with 5mm in the front and 10-12mm in the rear. Do these numbers sound like they're right and would help give more of a flush fit? Or if anyone has better advice on sizes of be greatly appreciative! Also first post woo, and added a pic of said vehicle.

I'm running 15mm spacers on my 2006 euro E90 325i, wheels are 8,5x19" ET35. Looks pretty good to me, but I'm not sure E90 LCI's are similar.

Yeah the lci have a wider track on the rear so was trying to take that into consideration when doing stuff, I remeasured the fender gap and I think I might be able to get away with 10mm front and 12mm rear with a few mm to spare. Sadly I had to put the spacers on hold for a bit since it's just got a new apartment. Also I really like those wheels and fitment you have there.

If you can't get under the car and measure the space between the suspension and tire or outside, why not rent the kit from ECS and test fit before buying? I looks like they charge $30 to use and credit the difference toward any ECS purchase.

The reason I didn't wanna use the ecs kit is cause they only refund you the money to use in their own store. I wanted to get bms spacers cause heard their 10mm spacers work on the hub better than other ones. Are the 10mm ecs ones good to clear the hub?
