Macht Schnell wheel spacer reference thread
One of the first things that can really enhance the appearance of your new M3 are spacers. Not only can they be aesthetically pleasing, but the added track width can improve handling characteristics as well. Often the question of "what size spacers can I run" is brought up numerous times on the forums. This can be a bit of a loaded question since there are many variables to account for.
This thread will serve as a reference to help make their decision based on the above criteria.
- Wheel choice (OEM 18" or 19")
- Tire choice
- Driving habits/track use
- Aesthetic preference
