2011 ZCP E92 M3 wheel spacers

So, I picked up a sweet low mileage 2011 ZCP E92 M3 and had some 17.5mm and 10mm Turner hub centric spacers left over from my 335i I sold and low and behold, placing the 17.5mm spacers on the front and the 10mm spacers on the rear (totally opposite of the way they were on the 335) set the car with a perfect squared off stance.

Anyone else run the thicker spacers on the front of their M3 over what you run on the rear and have any handling issues or anything? I test drove it and it drove perfect with absolutely no rubbing. Looks wise it's dead on.

I'm running 10mm square on my current ZCP, no noticeable change. I ran 15mm F, 12mm R with my civic M3, felt great. I'm not sure at what point you'd notice the change in scrub radius. If it looks and feels great enjoy it!

That's the tire size I'm going to change to also and I think the 10mm on the rear worked out great for the look I wanted. I was just surprised that the front wheels were "sunk" in that much that the 17.5mm spacer brought it out perfectly where it needed to be. Had me worried that that much movement would compromise the handling and things.

This is how the stance turned out.

I was running 12.5mm front and 15mm rear for a ZCP suspension, standard width tires. I switched over to 275s and the 15mm is rubbing, so my assumption is 15mm is the widest with the stock setup.

I bet if you swap them, 12.5mm rear and 15mm front, it will have you golden on the look and no more rubbing.

+1. I am lowered so from what I assessed anything more that 12mm front and 10mm rear would likely cause rubbing. You guys must be speaking specifically to stock ZCP height...?

Yes, mine is the stock ZCP height.
