Spacers for 335is

Hey Guys

Please help me, what spacers size do I need for 335is with 19' 313 wheels. I am on factory suspension. I want nice flush aggressive look for the front and back.

Safe setup:
10mm front
15mm rear

More flush
15mm front
20mm rear

Worst case scenario you buy the 15 & 20mm and if it doesn't work you can use the 15mm on the rear and either buy another 10mm set for the front or 15mm for the rear.
*assuming stock tyre sizes or 225 & 255.

i just put in 12 on the back and 15 on the front. I would not go anymore than 12 or even 10 on the back as the rear is low as it is and can rub with just the stock suspension. the front on the other hand will have no problem with even 15.

Agreed!

If you're unsure, simply measure it yourself - this should help you out:

Thank you all.
Any recommendations. I know, some spacers are cheaper and may create vibrations. I am looking for best quality. I will stay with 313 rims but I am ditching RFT and going with Super Sport 235 or 245 front and 265 or 275 back.
What is the maximum tire size I can put on OEM 313 rims? Will 245F and 275B fit the rim?

I did 12's and 18's. You could probably do 15's on the front as the 12's are not completely flush.

I run 12mm spacers front and rear. Rear is quite tight but front could use 15mm.

Re: 313's with spacers on 2010 E92 X-Drive & H&R Sport springs

15mm rear and 12 mm front worked OK for me with 18x8" 313's. Got them from Burger Motorsports and have had no issues.

There is some contradictory info in this thread.

one of the earlier posts says:

"Safe setup:
10mm front
15mm rear"

and another post says....

"I run 12mm spacers front and rear. Rear is quite tight but front could use 15mm."

That guy would be implying the larger size should be on the front, so why does the safe setup have the larger on the back?

Depends greatly on the tyres used.

For example I have Michelin spoiler Super Sports, 235 front 265 rear

MPSS are very square tyres so you can't be as aggressive with spacers.

Personally I've tried a few setups and landed on NO front spacers and 10mm rear spacers

12.5/15mm F/R on MPSS 225/255.

If i were up to 235/265 I'd probably do 12.5 all around...some would say you're still safe with 15mm rear on 265+, others dont. Worse thing is you try them out and end up selling them for 90% value on the forums, after you measure first before ordering of course...

10mm front/15mm rear/Pilot 4S on mine and they rub on all four. Front in full lock rubs on the inner fender behind the oil cooler and rear on bumps and around corners.
