Sadly-picked up my m3 in December,while I had my 8.5 square setup from my 335is.these are moda 18's they needed 15mm on the back and 12.5 for the front to smarten it up.looked great.and the were Turners too,

As I couldnt
drive him with stock summers I opted to keep them, it does look dorky from up close, but I have 40 mmt to fill up. Looks kind like an elephant on roller skates,, I was lookin at those 30mm babies and scratch in my chin. Might Just do that for now and revisitfo next winter.we'll fixer ummp next winter with more appropriate, the spacers are great fromTms, I got the carwithouuy

Keep in mind that some cars even come from the factory with spacers or are offered as an option ala Porsche. With the 997's, if you got a 911 Carrera 4 (S) you got the same wheels as the 2 wheel drive variant but with a 15mm rear spacer to offset the 1" wider rear track of the 911 4. Also, they are offered in 7mm sizes right from the get go as an option, well the did for the 997 now only a 5mm spacer for the 991.

Not to mention the GTS comes with a 5mm spacer.

fell asleep at the tablet

Apologies for the previous post. It appears I fell asleep mid sentence. I am more an insomniac than narcoleptic. Anyway the TMS spacers are excellent. I should probably get wider winter rims and ease back a bit on the spacers.
My previous car' '11 335is needed a little push out with the 15mm on rear and 12.5 front. 15 on the front would have been perfect I think. That was with the 18 inch stock is wheel '313s
