I have LM's in 19x9.5 et32 and run a 10mm spacer. I run 19x10 et25 with 5mm spacer in rear. with the 19x11 you shouldn't need spacer in the rear but definitely in the front. BBS ships a 10mm with the 9.5 et32

19x8.5 et 32 for the front you meant? 19x10 et 25 are the wheels tirerack recommends. Pushing your wheels too far out with spacers will put stress and not to mention more rocks get pick up and thrown at the rear fenders. Get quality spacers if you must.

These are e46 m3 sizes. The e9x m3 can fit the wider version. Tirerack is often conservative with their recommendations.

Gotcha, I did a little research and just realized M3 can fit 19x9.5 et 35 + spacers at the front.

I have LM for my E46. What size spacer do I need to fit an E90? reverse mount the front + 12mm spacer and leave the rear as is?
