Need some help with spacers

I just got some Vredestein tires in 255/35-19 and 275/35-19 to go with my stock M3 wheels (E90).

I want to get spacers, but my measurements seem wrong. I am measuring 14mm in the front and 17 in the rear. I used the tape and the ruler method and was only 1mm off between the two.

Does that souund right or am I doing this wrong?

I expected to need smaller spacers because each of my tires is 10mm wider than stock. But that doesn't explain why I might need larger spacers in the rear when it seems almost everyone else uses larger spacers in the front.
