15mm/12mm seems to be the most popular set-up for ZCP equipped cars.

impressed that the ZCP stock drop looks great with spacers - doesn't even really need springs to lower it.

For the M3 the lowest recommended size we do is 12/10. Sizes under 10mm wont really show much of a difference.

Hi there! Thanks for a great reference thread! I was wondering if it's possible to fit 18mm front and 15mm rear for a stock ZCP car? The most I saw on this thread for ZCP is 15/12. Thanks in advance.

Thank you so much! Great looking car! One last thing, I highly doubt it but suppose you intend to lower the car just a little in the future will there be issues with 18/15?

IMO that looks like it will turn into an issue. I only say that from looking at my 18's OEM, they have the 18/15 and its aggressive. I am thinking thats why EAS is saying 12/15 is the usual for ZCP to give you the most aggressive stance possible. Makes sense since you are half an inch wider on your fronts and rears.

Or just add camber with the 18/15 setup, maybe that will work?

Thanks K and STi.

To answer your question, I might lower the car in the summer on Eibachs as they retain close to OEM ride quality for daily driving. H&Rs and KWs too stiff and harsh ride quality. OR might go with KW DDCs (Coilovers that have EDC adjustability).

Also, I can confirm 100% with a 18/15 set-up on Eibachs or H&Rs Sport Springs you will not rub at all. Ask 'Malek' on the forum, he's done this set-up already with zero rubbing issues. Camber plates not needed.

Faaaantastic! For the most part I think it will be 18/15 for me! I've always wanted to really flush it. I'm so stoked now. Thanks a lot for the info and extra tid bits on the suspension.

The typical spacer sizing for ZCP with the 275 rear tire would be a 12mm spacer. I would say the 10mm spacer might be one that you should not have any issues with rubbing. As for the front, it would be typically a 15mm spacer, and you should be able to use a 12mm.

I use the 10mm spacer with a 10" ZCP GTS BMW rim and 275's. The car is lowered on B&G springs and I only rub when the car has additional passengers.

Depending on your tires (rounded or blocked sidewall), it's close.

18mm / 15mm = Super flush w/ NO rubbing issues.

I am on stock 18" 219M wheels, KW V3 suspension with 265/40R18 PSS tires, the rear rubs the fender liner with 10mm spacers when you are cornering hard (track/autocross). With PS2 tires, no rubbing.

Even 10mm spacers will rub in the rear with stock size tire set up.

I recently took off spacers from the front and rear (F:18mm & R:15mm). I specifically targeted the rear because my 295/30/19 (Yokohama advans) on my right side was too close to the fender. I am considering on putting either the 15mm or 18mm in the front now? Any suggestions? Is it ok to just have a pair of spacers on the front? If so, which ones would suffice on my current setup? Trying to maintain that aggressive look!

Thanks!
