What spacers would be recommended for ZCP with 255/35 front tires and 275/35 rear tires? Do spacers have any ill effects on EDC settings and mappings? Thanks!

Great post and information!

Just to confirm after reading the posts, if I have a '10 E92 with OEM 19" wheels and suspension, the recommended spacers would be 15mm front and 12mm rear?

Also, what are the widest tires you car run on this set-up?

Ready to order, Thanks!

You would have to measure clearance as shown on the first page to find the correct fitment for your wheels:http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...67&postcount=2

Depending on how big of a spacer you want to run, the 75mm is good enough for up to 12mm Spacers.

I will need a minimum of 10mm spacers to clear the APracing BBK I would like to get installed. I'm running OEM style 219 18" US spec wheels. I hear 12mm would be best to provide I think 4mm clearance. What about the back? It won't need it to clear the BBK but I would think it makes sence to keep the stance widen in the back too if I have to widen it up front by 12mm.

Should I go 12mm all around? It's a temperary issue until I get 19" wheels someday down the road but might not be for a long while.

What do you all suggest?

Cheers,

The spacers many people are running are 15mm front and 12mm rear, but some have even gone for 18mm fronts and 15mm rears for a more aggressive look, but may have the problem of rubbing. If you have any other questions, feel free to PM me directly!

18MM for the rear wheels would probably cause some rubbing issues. I would say 15mm at VERY most, and even that causes very slight rubbing. If you don't want rubbing, I usually suggest 15mm up front and 12mm in the back for the best look without rubbing.

I just had the the 18-15 setup installed on my M3 E90 last week. If I was told I would have rubbing with 15mm in the rear, I don't think I would have gone that aggressive. I hope I don't have issues and possible damage.

Front 18mm
Rear 15mm.

For those wondering, it works perfectly and the 12mm front and 5mm recommendation is too conservative. Dont bother even putting a 5mm in the rear in my opinion, and don't bother with the 12 in the front either. The tires are stretched on the ZCP wheels, and you can even fit 20mm front and 18mm rear without ANY rubbing what so ever.

Here ya go.. Pictures were taken with a point and shoot camera, and not my SLR. I will take better pics soon.



perfect! thanks for sharing.

That confirms what I want:

15mm fronts with ZCP running 255/35
12mm rears with ZCP running 275/30
(or 10mm rears with ZCP running 285/30)

For as many people as there are whom are running BBS LM's, I'm surprised that I don't see any BBS LM/spacer fitment posts.

I am awaiting the delivery of my 2011 AW E93 M3 (on a vessel). After reading this thread, adding spacers will be my first mod! I am new to this forum and this will be my first M3, so I have no idea how to go about doing this. Any recommendations on where I can take it to get it done (I am not DIY when it comes to cars...yet)? I live in LA County. Thanks.
