I have the 15/10mm spacers with the OEM tires, but ordered the 255 and 275 PSS replacements, and starting to get concerned I may have rubbing!
anyone?

There is a chance that it'll rub with the upsized PSS since the sidewalls on the PSS are a little bit bulkier than the OEM tires. We do recommend that you measure the clearance of the wheels with your new tires before putting the spacers on.

Those spacers are pretty aggressive, but on OEM Michelin or Continental tires you should be okay!

You should be fine with that, as we've done the same set-up on lowered cars.

Thanks for posting this.... I have the same car and this helped me make the decision to order the 12mm/15mm setup. Shopping for the right set of springs next.

Order just placed with EAS... Now, the waiting.

Is this for the 18' OEM or we talking 19' OEM? I am pushing for H&R Sport Springs with the OEM 18' with the most aggressive look possible.

Thanks

The black e90 has the one off Tanabe lowering springs with Apex Arc 8's in 18"x9.5" +22f, 18"x10.5" +27r

Shouldn't be different between the 18's or the 19's, they have the same offsets. Are you on OE tire sizes?

Yes, I am on PSS 245/40/18 and 265/40/18 tire size. I thought 19's had more stretch which allowed more spacer room. Thanks for the info, very helpful.

I would go with a 15/12mm setup. It would be less prone to rubbing and also you would have a little left when you change tires or brands. 18/15 should work but would be more prone to rubbing if you had a carr full of passengers.

Can you just do spacers on the rear? Would that throw anything off? I am currently running VMR 710's. 19x9.5 in the front and 19x10 in the rear, which should be a pretty common set up. The fronts look good, but the rear could come out a bit. I am also lowered on Eibach Sports.

Thanks!

Yes, you can run spacers on just the rear with no adverse affects to your car. Your V710's should be 19x10 et 25( Same as ZCP wheels) so you should be able to fit 12 mm spacer in the rear without rubbing.
