ZCP & Spacer ?

What's the best spacer size for ZCP car? I don't want overly aggressive pushing wheels out too far. But I'd like to bump them a bit to give the car a better look.

I'm doing 12/10's as i don't want them pushed all the way to the edge. I don't have the car yet so I can't be certain this will be what i want. However from reading other posts it seems to fit my needs.

Look around, there are plenty of posts on this.

12/10mm is the recommended spacer combo setup for ZCP.

I think 12/10 is too conservative.

I went 15mm all around with no problems and I like the look.

If you wanna go conservative got 15f / 12r - but 15 all around doesn't rub.

J08M3: I did 12.5 all around which is quite popular. I believe lots of people do 15 front 12.5 rear as well.

Brainofjjj: AFAIK, it is not suggested to use 10mm spacer for BMWs.

If you are using factory tire sizes, you should do 18mm front and 15mm rear.

Here are some pictures for you on a lowered car.

Tried 15/12 on my ZCP and the center of the tires were pushed out slightly beyond the fenders.

The same as non-ZCP 19" wheels. 245/35/19, 265/35/19. The ZCP wheels are 0.5" wider front and rear.

Same as non ZCP cars, but on half inch wider wheels, which creates a stretch.

Start by measuring how much fender clearance you have. Then you can figure out what spacers would work.
