Very nice - love seeing the Gunmetal 18s on Sedans!

18/15 is perfect, very aggressive

Would the 18/15 setup work well with H&R Sports springs? No rubbing issues?

The 18/15 spacer setup would work if you have similar to stock OEM alignment settings and stock Michelin tires. Even then, it's pushing it and likely to rub with the 18/15, because it's quite an aggressive setup. If you're worried that you might rub, the 15/12 setup is a bit more conservative.

Turn the wheels completely to left or right and inspect for any rubbing on the inner fenderwells.

Do keep in mind that you are running springs with the lowest drop (RD Sport) along with the most aggressive spacer setup. Clearance will be minimal during braking/wheels turning.

18/15 is quite aggressive with the ZCP, and would likely rub on full lock especially if you are lowering the car. I would recommend the 15/12 setup if you want to avoid rubbing, but if you are not worried about rubbing then the 18/15 would work for you

ZCP Only:
Just remember; lowered with a 10mm+ tire (over stock size) and anything over a 10mm spacer, you will rub. With people in the car, 10mm+ up-size tire and lowered with 10mm spacer, you will rub.

x2...You will definitely rub. You may want to consider a sub 10mm spacer on the rear if you want to run a 285. I am now speaking from personal experience!

Any rubbing or anything negative about your choice after having them a few days? I was thinking 10/5 but 15/10 does look nice!

Typically with the OEM 19" wheels, 15/12 is the most common setup. Some people have gotten away with 18/15 but it is quite aggressive and may rub, especially if you're lowered. Give us a call if you have any other questions or need advice!

Question to EAS. 08 e90 m3 with stock suspension and stock 19s. Will the 15mm front and 12mm rear be perfectly flush to the fenders or will any of the wheels protrude past the fender?
