Hub extender for e9x m3?

The TMS hub extender does not work with the e90 m3. Does anyone make one that fits this car?

thanks in advance.

What is and why do you need a hub extender? Are you talking about spacers?

e9x hubs have an inverted chamfer - there is nothing for a hub extender to grab onto like previous M3s.

I want to run 10mm spacers for AutoX to increase front track. SCCA rule allows very little modification for A Stock and 10mm spacers are allowed.

No need to worry, most quality +10mm spacers (like Macht Schnell) have an extended lip to center the wheel on the hub.

I'm running 10mm MS spacers with zero issue... no need for a extender.
