Anyone running 17x9 ET 30 with 255/40 all around on pre-lci E90 stock sport suspension and spacers in the rear? I have bridgestone re71r, which are similar size to the same spec continental. Wondering what sized spacers I can squeeze in there. I ran 20 mm spacers in the rear on style 162 and the spacing was very nice. My Arc 8 sit back from the fender a bit. Looks like I could get a 10 mm on there, maybe.

Donutz,

We do recommend the 17x9 ET30 with 255/40-17 tires and no spacer as a direct fit.

If you already have the wheels and tires mounted on the car, the best bet would be to measure from the outside tire edge to the inner fender lip and subtract 2mm. This will let you know exactly the spacer size that is required for your setup.

There is not really a blanket spacer recommendation since every car is setup a bit different with respect to ride height, alignment, tire brand and compound.

How to measure for spacer size

I have included a link to a photo that shows the ideal way to measure for a the proper spacer size needed.

Hyper black 17x9 ET 30 wrapped in 255/40 /17 Bridgestone RE71R, wheels coated in Gtechniq C5 and BeadMaker, tires treated with Chemical Guys VRP. Thanks to everyone who replied to my questions in this thread, definitely helped me make some decisions. I still think hyper silver would have been a better choice, but too bright for my neighbourhood!

Anyone running 275 in the back, on a 9.5" 35 offset wheel, on an E92 LCI, with no rubbing?

If yes, which tires are you using? I'm looking into the Indy 500, and I can't figure out if I should get 265 or 275.

I think 275s will rub on stock M-sport suspension, but should be fine if you have coilovers.

It's a somewhat aggressive fitment, but definitely possible. I'd recommend being prepared to roll the rear fenders if you do experience any rubbing with 275s. 265s should fit without issues.

Here's 275/40-17 on the rear of an E92 with 17x9.5" ET35:

Isn't this pre-lci? I was asking about lci.

I know what Apex's recommendation is, but wanted to get some feedback from people who are running this setup.

Pre-LCI is shown in the photos, but all E92 non-M fitments are the same, it's the sedans and wagons that change from pre to post-LCI.

No way dude, you made the right choice there

Those tires look super wide for a 255 (which isn't all that surprising). Almost looks like a 265 or even 275 all season! Reminds me of this post on the Miata boards lol
https://forum.miata.net/vb/showpost....5&postcount=16

What tires did you have on there before? Have anything to compare them to from a width perspective?

Ah, I didn't know. Thanks for clarifying. I guess I'll take my chances.

Put together this short clip of the car. It has some great shots of the EC-7.

Hey Expert@ApexRaceParts I totally forgot...

When upgrading to the F30 370mm BBK with your 18" Arc-8, am I needing a spacer in the front/rear? Thought I remembered seeing 5mm for the front was required but not 100%.

Thanks!

Are the group buys a thing of the past or are they still possible?

Thanks for the post! They'll clear on an F30, but we haven't tested the clearances when used on an E9x. Sometimes the clearances change when used on a different chassis due to different mounting positions.

Thank you.
Group buys are still very much alive, and they are much easier now. We use www.GangUp.com to host our deals now, and you can sign up for notifications on our home page to make sure you don't miss out. Visit www.apexraceparts.com and scroll towards the bottom to the "Stay On Track" section.

Hope this helps!
