Spacer Advice on ZCP E90?

Has anyone added spacers to an M3 with the competition package; preferably an E90? I'm sticking with the stock wheels and springs for now and hoping I can get some experienced advice on what size spacers I should go with to achieve some flushness. I searched and didn't find much.

Not a ZCP but I run 12mm on all 4 corners.

Have the same question but have already bought spacers. I'm going with 255/275 Vreds and plan on trying 12mm front and 10mm rear. I've got a 5mm spacer so if the original config doesn't work, I'll drop down to 10/5 front/rear or just 10 front.

Yes I would. I'll have to wrap my head around tires and sizes when I buy some aftermarket wheels.

Remember... The Competition wheels are running 9" width up front and 10" in the rear, so sizes might vary from the stock 19" wheels from the standard M3. Best bet is to measure up the gap between the tire and the inner fender. More than likely this gap will be AROUND 10mm's or so on the stock tires.

I'm in the same boat when I change PS2's. I will be running stock 19 Rims but I want the stance. I was thinking 245Vred's in front with 15mm spacers and 275Vred's in rear with 5mm spacer. Not sure 10's will work without rubbing. Please let me know what you experience.

Use this guide to measure the distance between the tire and fender. This will provide you with an absolute number to go with.

The EAS guys have put a 255/35 Yoko AD08 with a 10mm spacer on a ZCP car. I assume it doesn't rub at least due to width but it will most likely rub a little due to height on the passenger side at full lock (that was my experience with this size tire on an my E92).

So I would not anticipate a 10mm spacer on the front causing a rub with just about any tire. We'll see. I'm supposed to get my car in 2-3 weeks and can post up results at that time.

Great to know but my concern was rubbing in Rear with 275 and 10mm spacer. Any advice?

Any suggestions on what spacer to run with my 19x10.5 rear BBS CH-R wheel? I am running a 285/30-19 and I feel it can definitely come out at least 5mm, maybe even 10mm. If anyone knows, please PM me. Thanks.
