Have you check out RS Technik? The lighten pockets design makes this one of the lightest wheel spacers out there. And we know lighter is better! =)

Check out H&R TRACK+, one of the reputable brands on the forums. They are forged alloy and will not crack or warp under street or track conditions. We can also package them together with longer bolts.

I've had three different MS set-ups with no issues. Rogue also makes some very nice quality spacers.

The Macht Schnell spacers are widely used by many M3 owners, including this board - the most popular by far.



A great reference thread can be found here with plenty of examples of M3s running MS spacer kits: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=262054

All sizes are available. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help.

A number of things can contribute to vibration:

- Rust on hub surface or hub (wheel and hub lip)
- Incorrect torque reading on lug bolts
- hubcentric rings (if equipped) interfering with chamfer on spacer or not seated correctly

The thread also showed that the user removed the spacers and still had vibration present on Post #25: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showpos...7&postcount=25

If there is vibration present before spacers, adding them later will only exaggerate the issue.

Im surprised more people dont buy the velocity motocars spacers. http://www.velocitymotorcars.com/bmw-wheel-spacers.html Ive had the rogue engineering and have seen the macht schnell spacers in person and prefer the velocity spacers. I love the spacer lock down feature that no other spacers have. Plus they are cheaper then everyone else.

I love the RS Technik spacers I got. The 15mm are perfect with my setup. I cant even feel them on the car. Oh and Ive have to take my wheels off a few times. The chamfered design makes these real easy to take off even after hundreds of hard miles and a track day!

Here are a few pics.








Good luck with whatever you choose.
