Spacer size for 245/265 on ZCP 19" wheels

Hi guys
I am running stock Conti 245/265 on ZCP 19" wheels. I am not thinking of dropping further for the time being (got lowered with ZCP package already)

I'm thinking of 15 front / 12.5 rear spacers. I was wondering if anybody has a similar tire/spacer set-up and had any rubbing issues.

If it matters here i plan to do few autocross and track days with this setup.

Thanks for your help

I just recently installed these TMS 12.5mm spacers on all 4 corners. In my opinion, it pushed out the wheel/tire perfectly. I would not want both the front and back's sticking out any further. My tire sizes are OEM and my suspension is stock. I'll leave it up to you to decide 12.5's or 15's

right, but your wheels and zcp wheels are different widths.....so will that make a difference in "flushness"..

I'm thinking 12.5 spacers all around as well once I take delivery of my e90 w/ zcp...I've seen pics of a coupe and was told he had no rubbing with 12.5mm all around and it's flush...


here's a 15 F 10 R set up

do a search, plenty of topics on this.

in a nutshell, with ZCP wheels, you can do this safely (stock suspension):

15mm fronts with up to 255/35 tires (18mm has been done with 245 ps2's with no problems)

12mm rears with up to 275/35 (average size tires such as PS2's, conti DSW, etc)
