No I plan on running OEM spec tires.

Yes, the sedan and coupes have the same offsets, and there are no fender mods required with the OEM specifications. If you upsize your tire though, then you'd have to check your clearance.

Anyone have rubbing issues with E90s, stock 18s, stock wheel size, EDC, running the 18/15 setup?

Should be perfectly fine if keeping stock springs. Lowered setups would get a minor amount of rubbing under full compression.

After installing these spacers, do I need to do an alignment?

An alignment is not needed unless your car's alignment is already out of specs. Simply installing the spacers won't change your alignment settings.

Dropped the hammer on 18/15 setup. Might add a 12mm set when it's time for ZCP wheels.

Don't know if anyone can help me, I got the 20" HRE P40 from a friend of mine, he gave me the spacer also which is 10/5. It looks great and everything, but for some reason when I turn, there is a clicking noise from the front.

When I 1st installed it, the noise was really bad, even when I drive straight, and even the car next to me could hear the noise as well. Try refitting it, got a bit better, but noise is still there sometimes when I turn...

Does anybody has the same issue?

I think I'm going to pull the trigger on some 18/15 spacers to run with my OEM 18s

I think I'm going to buy some 12mm for the rear and throw the 15mm on the front. Hopefully that will be good enough.
FYI this problem went away when I switched from Pirelli PZeros to Michelin PS2s.

E90 M3 Sedan OEM 19's NON ZCP
if I did 15mm all around, will the rears rub? Has anyone experienced rubbing with 15mm in the rear?
I don't want to do 18mm in the front because I'm afraid the front tires will throw too much debris upwards.

the 15mm in the rear looks really aggressive which is what I want to go for but if it rubs, I don't want to deal with it.

We've had a customer do 15mm spacers in the rear before, but it's very aggressive, and would look off with the 15mm also being in front since it won't be as aggressive. We usually recommend the 15/12, but you can try the 15/15 if you'd like.

It wouldn't look that off, would it? 18 mm or 15 mm front , hmmm....
I only thought of square setup (15mm all around) because I was hoping that it wouldn't mess with the stock handling.

Also, will 15mm in the rear rub with stock suspension? question hasn't been answered yet x)

Keep in mind your rear wheels are wider than your fronts, which is why you'd need a wider front spacer to compensate for the rear being pushed out. It can rub under full compression, especially if you have a squared sidewall tire.
