18" TE37SL + Spacers?

Hey guys,
Just got some new tires mounted on my TE37SL (18x9.5 et 22, 18x10.5 et 20)
265/35/18 & 285/35/18 Michelin PSS.

Car is e90 m3, mildly lowered on Swift Spec-R Springs.

Do you guys know if I can add any spacers to get a more aggressive fitment (of course without rubbing).

I have 12.5mm spacers and 15mm spacers laying around, but just throwing it up there before I try it out.

Maybe 10mm rear. Your setup sits pretty aggressive already.

check the AW car with red TE37 last page

with spacer his down et 3 F and et 8 R

you can run 15mm in front to make it et 7 F and 12.5 in the back to make it et7.5 in the back but you might need some negative camber

Your wheel specs are already aggressive. Success is dependent on many factors. Ride height, camber/alignment, tire variances, etc. My car is lowered on coilovers and I can fit a 275/35/18 PSS on 18x9.5 et15 in the front without rubbing. I doubt the 12.5mm spacers will work in the front but there is only one way to find out.... You should be able to fit a 5mm in the front.

I saw that, thanks. It seems he is running stock tire sizes (stretched) with that set up. I don't think it will work with my fatter tires.

I think 19" would look better!

I'm with you on this one. I need my wheels to come out. Bit just don't know what spacers to buy. I want the flush look and more aggressive stands in the rear. Keep me posted

Those sizes are already aggressive -especially compared to stock- and fit really nice. I can't see why you'd want to add spacers unless you're trying to clear brakes/suspension
