Trying to maintain that aggressive look!

Thanks!
I would suggest going with the 15mm in the front unless you have measured or didn't previously have any issues with the 18mm being in the front and like the way that looked.

Will I rub on 15F 12R?
We have put in 15mm FRONT and 12mm REAR spacers on plenty of e92 M3s and have not any issues.

Cool Robert, thanks! I got my spacers installed by you guys last year and I like the way they were installed (had no issues, I know a lot of people complain about shaking and whatnot). How much do you guys charge just to install the spacers for the front? I think ill go with the 18mm in the front since I had no issues with it and loved the way they looked.
Ill try to swing by this week or something.
Thanks

Looking for a flush look without rubbing, was thinking 12mm front and 10mm rear or 15mm front and 12mm rear.

1. 09 e92 m3

2. Wheels/offset:
Front & Rear: OEM ZCP Wheels

3. Tire size:
Front: Michelin PSS 255/35-19
Rear: Michelin PSs 275/35-19

4. Suspension:
KW Sleeve

5. Spacer size:
Front:
Rear:

I would suggest going with the 15mm front and 12mm rear. That is the typical size we recommend with the OEM ZCP set up, but since the car is on KW Sleeve, you should measure the gap first to be 100% certain.

Thanks to Steve from Washington for taking these photos!
Your car looks amazing!!!I have the same setup. Not the Lime Rock edition, but the same suspension and wheel/tires. Some people have been claiming that they are rubbing with 15/12mm spacers with the P-Zeros because they are wider than the other stock tire options. Any rubbing issues? Do you notice any difference in the ride?

Thanks very much

Are you sure about this? And the 18 will go upfront and the 15 in the rear?

Not sure if there's a difference with E90 vs. E92, but on my E() with stock 19's and new Michelin Super Sports I was rubbing a little bit in the rear with 15/12 on F/R, without lowering. There's a plastic bit inside the wheel well where the rear bumper meets the rear quarter panel that needs to be cut and/or filed down (or you tires will do it for you). I lowered on the KW sleeve this week and obviously needed to file down a bit more.

Not major and didn't seem to harm the car or tire, but it definitely rubbed before and after lowering on stock 265 in rear.

I have ZCP wheels and CONTIs for tires. These are a little more "stretched" than the PSSs or PS2s I believe. So if you have CONTI's you will have NO rubbing issues at all. I drive pretty agressively and load the car on both sides all the time, go to home depot with it every now and then and have it packed with stuff - no rubbing.

I have the exact same setup. Any rubbing issues with the 15/10 spacers? Your help is appreciated.

Looking for a close to flush look

1. 08 e92 m3

2. Wheels/offset:
Front & Rear: 219s / 220s

3. Tire size:
OEM Sizes on Both

4. Suspension:
KW Sleeves

5. Spacer size:
Looking to run 12 front / 10 rear (heard this was safe)
Would 15 front /12 rear be too much?

I need to be 100% sure I won't have any rubbing.

Also, can I be on the Max low from KW recommended?

12/10 and 15/12 will both be safe options with those wheels. I don't think we've had any reports of rubbing with that set-up. As for the sleeve-overs, most of our customers like them close to the max lowering setting - a few have maxed them out without any issues.

Stock ZCP suspension with camber -1.5* front, -1.9* rear. Soon to be going -2.5* front with Vorshlag plates.

Tires: PSS 255/35/19 front and 275/35/19 rear on stock ZCP wheels
Spacers: 15mm front, 12mm rear

Looks great, but fronts rub fender liners in front and behind tires during turning. I assume it's due to the larger diameter tire, but it's not THAT much taller. Strangely the passenger side rubs more than the driver side. No rubbing in the rear. I'm going to try to live with it for a week but overall I'm a little disappointed.

I have Eibachs and 245/265 PSS tires on ZCP wheels. I just ordered 15/10, but I'm having second thoughts and thinking I should go with 12/10. Don't know if that helps - I'm trying to figure this out myself.
