18x8 Platinum Flux - making it work...

Hey all, I picked up my 2013 335is vert a few months back and love it, low mile , clean car. I love it EXCEPT for the fact that the prior owner installed 18x8 Platinum Flux wheels in place of the 19" 313's that were stock. Not ideal for me, but I don't feel like shelling out for wheels until I've gotten to all of the preventative maintenance, and then to FBO stage, which means that I'll be living with these for at least a year or two. So, I would like to install some spacers to improve the stance, as the rears are mighty tucked in. Tires are Goodyear Eagle Sport all-season 225 40R18's all around. Definitely NOT the combo I would have picked, but like I said, it's gonna be maintenance -> mods -> wheels, so I need to make it work. With the above combo, what spacer size, front and rear, would you all recommend to flush things out some more? The rims have a 32mm offset with 5.748" backspacing. Any help would be appreciated.

Honestly, you just need to measure and build in tollerances. Each suspension and wheel/tire combo creates variances -- even how much you weigh or if you have stuff normally in the trunk (ie sub box, etc).

Follow this to give yourself a good idea where to start:
