Remove the spacers, use a wire brush to remove anything stuck in the hub exterior surface and the inside of the spacers center hole. Repeat until you can install a spacer in a way that it doesn't take excessive force to rotate it once inserted. It should be a tight fit, but not a sticking fit if you know what I mean.

Once you are satisfied then use anti-seize in all contact surfaces to keep the spacers from sticking to the hub again.

That should work.

hit the spacer with a rubber hammer, lower portion and it should let the top come off... you should have no problems.

Looks good although to me it looks like the front might have been pushed out a touch too far.

I think 12/12 is ideal.

I just did the 15 front/12 rear spacer treatment using the beautiful Rogue spacers from Bimmerworld. Fabulous engineering. Lightweight. Perfect fit. NO vibration. It seems that 15/12 F/R is the ticket for stock sized wheels (mine are actually Fikse's but they're the stock size so I could cheap out and use the OEM tires. I wanted weight savings and great looks without rattling my middle-aged back.) Fit is as shown on REP1KRR's photos. The front does NOT extend beyond the fender.

I just ordered the Rogues in 12/12. The cutouts to reduce weight are larger than on the German brand. The notched back to allow them to be pried off is nice, too. And, they're US-made.

How's the fitment on the Rogues? Any shimmy?

I was looking for your opinion, too, but I guess you don't have them on yet.

Just got the Macht Schnell spacers put on my E92 M3. I went 18mm front/15mm rear and it looks mean. Thanks for the hook-up Brandon @ EAS .

Very nice set up OP, what exactly kind of anti-sieze are you guys using for the spacers? I'm thinking of going with the Mach's 12/12mm.

Actually, if I were to go with 12/12mm and H&R springs, anyone think there would be any contact with the fenders Front/back in dips or turning?

You'll be fine - we've installed even a few sets of 15/18mm combos on H&R-equipped setups with sufficient clearance.

Anyone install the 15F/12R spacers with HR springs and wish they went 18F/15R?

Wheel locks with spacers?

What are people using for wheel locks with spacers (if anything)?

Haven't found any extended length locking bolts in black. I'm not using anything for now.
