With the OEM wheels, I have had two customers run 10mm spacers front and rear to fill out the gap. I find that to be enough to make it flush with the fender and not cause rubbing issues.

Depends on the sizing but 10 or 15mm typically run about $130 with the extra bolts for a pair. We carry the H&R TRACK+ versions which are about this pricing depending on the size you go with and are forged alloy for superior construction and durability.

15mm Seems to keep it pretty flush on the M3 Stock wheels.
10mm is fine as well of course.

You can pickup H&R hubcentric rings with extended bolts from us for like $100 for those sizes. I agree the spacers really help the M3's look.

Thank you...
15mm front and 10mm rear. Here's a recent install on factory 18s:







Vehicle is equipped with 15mm/10mm spacers:

H&R TRAK+ wheel spacers for BMW (DR Series) - 10mm
http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...roducts_id=958

H&R TRAK+ wheel spacers for BMW (DR Series) - 15mm
http://www.europeanautosource.com/pr...roducts_id=960

Don't forget longer lugs also - we carry everything in stock.
