What about 18x10et25 square with 275s and kw cs? Currently running 265 square and fronts have a couple mms clearance. Need bigger tires and correct spacers! Im sure you guys have done a bunch of these setups. Please let me know! Thanks

Quite a bit! We recently had a E92M3 with KW Clubsports with a 10" squared set of 285 Hankook TDs and needed a 10mm spacer to clear the adjustment collar from the inner sidewall.

On the flip side, a JRZ RS-PRO-equipped M3 with a squared set of 295 Hankook TDs didn't need a spacer at all. The adjustment collar was positioned (higher) simply where it didn't interfere.

With 275s and your Clubsports you may get away with a 5mm, 10mm would be max. You can also play with shorter springs to change collar height.

Sounds like him.

You can always drop by and we can see what works best on the lift and give an expert opinion.

With a setup like that I would recommend going with a 15mm front and a 12mm rear. With those sizes no issues with rubbing on the 245/365 tire sizes.

This particular car has 15/12

Will 5mm spacers on my 20 x 10.5 et25 rears work without rubbing, assuming I'm not lowered? I'm currently running 295/25/20 Ventus but may go 305/25/20 in the future.

With 220 wheels I would go with a 15/12mm setup. With a 20/15 you will probably run into rubbing issues.

That one is a tough call, 20x10.5 et 25 is pretty aggressive. That one would be best if you could measure with a tape measure.

If on stock tires I would recommend the 15/12 setup. That one is our tried and true combo.

I would only do that with stock suspension. With 10mm spacers on stock 18", you rub the fender liner on the back tires.

I am going to install Axis XGT wheels on my 2008 e90 M3.



According to the information on the sellers website offset in front is 32mm, in rear 20mm. Wheel sizes are 8.5x19 in front, 9.5x19 in rear and I have Continentals Extreme Contacts DW 245/35 in front, 265/35 rear. There are no modifications to the suspension of that car.

What size spacer I can install on those wheels without worrying about rubbing?

Looking at the size and offsets of the wheels you are looking to put on your car, you should be able to fit a 15mm front and 12mm rear without any issues on the conservative side. You can probably even fit an 18mm in the front and 15mm rear, although I do suggest to measure it before hand to see how much you want to bring the wheels out. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me.

What would you recommend for my track/AX setup?

'08 E90 M3 (pre-zcp) with 0.5" drop from Dinan suspension

wheels: APEX ARC-8 18x10 et25, square

tires: 275/35 Dunlop Direzza ZII, square (pretty square and wide tire; 0.4" wider tread than same size PSS)

What size spacer would you expect to fit in the rear without rubbing? The front has plenty of rubber to fill the fender and I'd like to even it out.

Thanks!

Depends on your camber. But i'd say 10mm rear for sure, front depends more on your camber
