I wonder if EAS has spacers for that baby?



that's a Fiat Polski. Haven't seen one of those in a while since back when I lived in Europe. Lighter than a mini. Had one for about year back then before My 1988 E30 M3. Sick little care. So fun and cheap to work on. Brings back memories.

I have style 219 wheels in 18s on my m3 with stock tire size. I'm slammed on kw sleeves can I fit 18mm and 15mm spacers? Or would 12.5mm/10mm be a better choice? What do people normally run when on style 260 18s and lowered on kw sleeves. Trying to get the most aggressive look before it starts to rub as I do drive the car hard. Thanks

OEM 19" 220m

F: 255-35-19 Michelin PSS

Trying to decide between 15/12 or 12/10 setup most important thing is no rubbing even with full car.

Thanks in advance

I would go 12/10 since you went +1 tire sizing. 15/12 Might have some rub with the PSS's.

Thanks Kevin will do the 12/10. I'll order from your website once suspension gets in.

I'm running 12.5 mm spacers all around on 2011 E90 with Competition pkg on stock Competition wheels with Pirelli PZero 265/35/19 tires. I'm seeing rubbing issues in the rear. It seems to be rubbing at the corner where the bumper meets the quarter panel. It's pretty noticeable rubbing when hitting a dip on the highway. It seems odd since most people are running this setup without any issues. Thinking about switching to 10mm. Should I be running lower than that? 8mm? Thanks.

I had the same issue. I have a 2011 E90 with the 18 inch wheels. Something about that piece of plastic that sticks out where the bumper meets the body panels. I ended up going with a 5mm rear and 12.5 up front. Some would argue 5mm is not worth it but, it works for me.

I've heard you can shave the plastic for better fitment. Just something I wasn't willing to do at the time.

Aloha,

New to the forum, but just about to take delivery of a 2011 e92 m3. It doesn't have the comp. package, but has 220m 19" wheels on stock suspension. I wanted spacers that would make the stance a little more aggressive, but not obviously so. Any downside to going with the 10mm spacers all around instead of the more common 12/10 or 15/12 combos?

Any insight as to looks and/or handling effects of a 10mm square setup would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

With the two setups you have i would go with 15mm front for either of your setups. For the rear i would go 12 with your 220 wheels and with your 219 wheels 12 will work fine but you are able to go wider since you are running narrower wheels.

No downside at all for the 10mm spacers. You can go a little more aggressive with a 12mm all around as well and not have any rubbing issues.

here is pic of that setup

I have the same problem. I mentioned it earlier in this thread. 10mm spacer in back on stock 18" wheels with stock size PSS tires and it rubs. I shaved the fender liner a bit to clear and it is working fine. I may have to change it out for a 5mm if I get beefier tires.

I have an 08 E92 M3 w/stock non-ECP suspension. I have OEM ZCP wheels and OEM spec PSS 245/265 (front/back) tires. I'm sure 15/12 spacers would work even if I do a conservative drop in the future. Can I get away with 18/15 spacers? Please PM pricing to 95834. Thanks! I want to be aggressive but of course I'm concerned about rubbing.

Thank-you for the info Kevin! I think I will take your advice and go with the 12mm spacers. Could I please get a quote for a set of 4-12mm spacers, shipped to Maui, HI.

Thanks again!
