Spacers for OEM 18's...yes I read the sticky :)

Basically want to get some spacers for my E92 M3, with the OEM 18 inch wheels....any of you guys running spacers on the stock wheels? I am not sure what MM looks good, so I am trusting you guys lol....I read that some people are running 15mm front and 12mm back..trying to get some other people to chime in.

Thank you

-Krozi

18/15 is the most aggressive set-up. Some run 15/12.

And niqui, no exhaust yet? I've seen you ask about all different exhausts. Get something!!

no vibration issues here.
make sure your shop cleans off the hub well, use like that metal drill brush.
and use plenty of anti-seize.
my car is not lowered, toyed with eibachs for the longest time but decided against it....if i am gonna do it, its coilovers or nothing i think.

My old set-up with stock 18': Rogue engineering 15mm:F/12mm:R. No vibration at all. RE spacers are top quality.
