E90 wheel spacing

Hey guys i have yet to find a thread with a e90 m3 with 18mm spacers front and 15mm rear... i have them from my e92 and i want to see how aggressive it looks on an e90 with a slight drop probably springs, i think it will rub but i am curious..

Here you go. Lowered on H&R springs at the time.



It did not rub at all.

It does not rub (depending on the tires on the wheels) and is the most ideal look for OEM wheels. I personally prefer it over the 15/12mm spacer combination.

Some of these aggressive spacer setups work in most scenarios but what happens when you get a couple dudes in the back seat or take it on a road (or track) that increases suspension compression?

+1 for more pics of the IB E90

On my '09 E90 w/ 220 wheels, I ended up rubbing the plastic liner in the rear w/ Turner 12.5mm rear spacers. I just trimmed the liner, and all was good.

In front, I have a 15mm spacer. The tire rubs the liner when the wheels are steered to the right, almost near the lock.

I ran 15mm front and 15mm rear lowered on H&R springs and had rubbing in the rear due to the tires (AD08). I then changed the rear to 12mm and have no problems now. So it depends on your choice in tires and size.
