Damn bro..that looks intense...I def like the 15-18 setup!

Ok, what size spacers are these? 12 and 15 mm? I think it looks great.

Hey guys,

Have you guys installed spacers on a E90 M with 19" Prem wheels? Wanted to see pics if you have them.

It's very easy to add the spacers. Take it to any place that has a floor jack and impact gun. Remove the wheels, add the spacers, put wheels back on, and wallah! You're all done. Also, that's my Space Gray M3 in the picture above, and I love the 18 front/15 rear setup. Looks really aggressive and doesn't impact the driving experience in any way.

it is super easy to do. If you can take off your wheel, you can install a spacer! Absolutely no need to take the car to the shop to do

Just to add to the steps, clean the hub surface with a wire brush to remove any buildup or rust before installing the new spacers. A bit of lube on the hub ring will make removal easer if needed later.

I loved the 18mm/15mm setup - it simply made the car look evil.

for the 15/18mm setup. Will you rub if you lower the car?

Also what was that car lowered on?

Hey Brandon, thanks for doing the install on my 18 front/15 rears. All the guys at the office think it looks intense with a nice bulldog stance .
