IT IS TIRE DEPENDENT!

On ZCP 359M wheels, you can use the following without rubbing:
-15mm fronts, 10mm rears
- 255 fronts, 275 rears
  • IF you use PSS/PS2/et al, then you will be fine.
  • IF you use a wider footprint tire, such as the AD08 or similar, you WILL have some rubbing

FYI...I have B&G springs and the GTS rims (10" at all four corners) and my back rubs with the 10mm spacer on larger bumps or all the time with people in the car. Running PSS 275 rears.

Dodge, are you going to leave the 10mm ones on in the back? Thanks for the help....I guess I may go 10mm/8mm if they even make 8......

They do make 8mm, but I vaguely remember reading that it's dangerous to run anything below 10mm because MOST don't have the lip for the wheel below 10mm.

The rubbing isn't horrible, so I left the 10mm spacers on. My family usually doesn't use this car when we are together, so most of its usage is just with me during my commute or when I can get away on a random Saturday. If you haul people around, IMO, the 10mm will be too aggressive.

1. 2011 e90

2. Wheels/offset:
Front: 19x9 OEM 359M, ET31
Rear: 19x10 OEM 359M, ET25

3. Tire size:
Front: Michelin PSS 245/40-18)
Rear: Michelin PSS 265/40-18)

4. Suspension:
Stock/EDC with Eibach Pro-kit

5. Spacer size:
Front: 12mm
Rear: 10mm

Got around to taking some decent pics. Major vibration issues when I installed the spacers. I followed the DIY to the letter. Took it to BMW and spent a bundle getting it aligned and road-forced balanced. Now it's perfect. No rubbing thus far and look is definitely more aggressive, but it's not obviously stanced.

I bought a set of 15mm and 12mm spacers for the front and rear respectively. I had my shop (very reputable and experienced with Euro to Italian exotics) put on the spacers for me as a favour. They informed me that both the 15mm and 12mm spacers came with the same length lug bolts. He stated that he got 6 full turns of the lug for the 12mm spacer, which is safe, but only 5 full turns of the lug bolt for the front with 15mm spacers. He stated that it is not recommended and not very safe.

Please advise, whether I got the wrong set of lug bolts or Macht Schnell has tested that to be a safe length lug bolt for 15mm spacers in the front

Hi Anthony,

I have seen your multiple posts and am located in Perth, Australia. From what I cannot find, there is no Australian dealer...

Can you supply these kits to Perth, Australia?

Thanks & Regards,
Ed
