ZCP with spacers

Ok guys, just put on some Turnermotorsport 12.5mm spacers all around on my ZCP M3. Haven't lowered it yet, that's the next step.

One thing I wanted to note was the TMS spacers are awesome. They're VERY high quality and precision made. The spacers come as a pair and fitted in one another. There is ZERO play when they mate up against each other, or on the wheel hub. Construction is absolutely fantastic and looks very very durable.

Here are the pics:

Other wise its sick

looks good. I am running 12/5 setup and it is definitely not enough in the rear. Your rear wheels look perfectly spaced out. I already purchased 10mm replacement spacers for the rear, but I am a bit hesitant to try them out because I am concerned with rubbing... I am running 255/275 tire set up though...

I honestly can't tell the difference in ride. Haven't been able to push it around corners though. Key for me however, the car does not shake one bit. Not even a hit of vibration all the way up to 95mph so far.

I avoided the 10mm spacer because of the possible issue with the center hub. 12.5mm seems fine for me but I do think with your wider tires it'll rub if you go with a 12.5mm spacer.

Thanks guys! I can't wait to get it lowered.

TMS spacers are the best out there, I have 5-6 sets for my cars. The 12mm looks perfect in the back. Looks like the fronts could even go 15mm to match the rear spacing. I'll let you know for sure when/if customs EVER releases my car at the port from ED.

yeah 15/12 should work just fine. Call me crazy but I actually like the front a tad bit less agressive than the rear.

Those TMS spacers look real nice!! I'm Currently running 15/10 on RD Sports and the look is awesome. If keeping stock wheels then 20-17/15-12 will be super flush on a mild drop.

are extended lug bolts required when running these spacers? did you order direct from tms?

Yes, Definitely need proper length lug bolts for spacers. Yes I got them from TMS. Black, 10.9 grade steel bolts. You COULD go with a stud conversion though as an alternative.
