Oem 19" 220M

When I purchased my 2009 E90, it came with the stock 18". I just recently purchased a set of OEM 220M and I was wondering if I need any spacers to fit the wheels on my car? I plan on running the stock 19" tire size.

No. Spacers will only aggravate the problem you're trying to avoid.

I'm running 275/35 in the back. Check the link in my sig for pictures.

Seriously shouldnt this be somewhat of a common sense question? your going half an inch upwards and downwards with factory wheels. why on earth would you think you would need spacers, which are designed to push the wheel outward?

yes, they are both oem and the same size and profile once you factor the reduced sidewall height of the tires they are essentially exactly the same lol

Try fitting the rear wheel on the front and see if it fits...It sure would be nice to run a square set-up if they don't stick out too much up front...
