335is spacers

I am looking to get some spacers for my rims, I have a 13' 335is with 19".

What are the recommendations for size both front and rear? I've tried reading the past threads but can specifically find something that works.

Anyone have suggestions?

TIA

If you measure, you can't go wrong:

Here is what I measured. Images are rear then front. 12mm in the rear and 10mm in the front is what it measures to inside. I'd like to be flush on outside. You'll notice the placement of the tape is on the innermost part of the tire too...

Spacers

I have a 2011 335is convertible, also white with 19x8.5 fronts I think, and 19x9 in the rear. Same wheels. I used a 12.5mm rear and flushed it out along with a 5mm front. I wanted that staggered look, wide in the rear and a bit narrower up front. Perfect look for me.

Now just looking for a coil over or a bit taller rear sprints so I can up my tires to another half inch or so taller.

No, you need longer bolts.

Looks great with red leather and white exterior on a cabrio. Good job on keeping it look so clean and fresh. I have exact same one with 19" rims and front/back carbon fiber lips. Where did you get the side skirts tho? Looks even sicker with them!

I used self tapping screws with neoprene washers to attach my lip. Screwed in from the bottom, def not coming off.

i have 5mm on front and 17mm on back with 17" m-sport wheels. my tires are staggered. it looks excellent and still retains an OEM look without it looking like you're using spacers, but also doesnt look like wheels are sunken in either.
