Spacers for Avant Garde M359 Rear Wheels Lowered on Eibach

Does anyone have any experience with the AG M359 wheels and eibachs? I'm running 275/35-19 in the rears and it looks like they could be pushed out a bit more. Trying to decide between 5mm or 10mm in the rear on these.

Thanks

Are your wheels the same offset as OEM ZCP, ET25? If they are you can run 12mm, but they will be pretty aggressive with 275. 10mm is the safer route some people take.

I'm running 275 tires on stock ZCP wheels and plan on going with 12mm soon.

Reigniting an old thread!!...

Joe, how did this turn out for you? I have exactly the same set up now...AG M359 wheels, Eibach Pro Springs and want to add spacers. Did you go 10mm or 12mm?

The drop on my rears was quite significant, at least 15mm. So I am a little concerned about them rubbing if I go with 12mm.

I'm now trying to get spacers for my setup but I'm confused; The guy at EAS didnt sound like he knew anyone with the setup so he said 5mm while seems too small. I might try to stop by IND to see if they can help test fit some spacers possibly and order from them.

10mm won't sit flush on AG. Gotta go 12mm minimum. 10mm's do sit flush on OEM 359's...it's all in the chamfer.

With what susension setup? I have eibach's which lower it a bit.

12mm should sit flush on the AG. I tried TMS and Macht Schnell 10mm spacers on AG359's and there was a paper thin gap between the spacer and wheel. If you go 12mm you may or may not rub under compression. If IND can test fit you that would be great.

BTW, OEM 359's work with 10mm due to the chamfer. The AG359's I had didn't have a chamfer, that was a few years ago.

So 12mm with eibach springs or without them?

I'm running 15mm on my ag 359 wheels on the rear. 275/30 tire. Lowered on h&r sport plus springs. They are flush and no rubbing.

Joe, I spoke to EAS and they were pretty confident with the info they gave me. As I'm running +1 on the tyre size (275/35/19) they suggested 10mm. I fitted the spacers last week and they fit great. I actually think I could have gone with 12mm to be honest. Drove with two mates in the back and did get some rubbing, so would suggest only one male back seat passenger or two small females/kids.

As mentioned, we have exactly the same set up.

The talk of 10mm not fitting is incorrect. Macht Schnell have factored this into their spacer production - maybe something they have only done recently

I'd have loved to have gone with 15mm....I think maybe because my tyre wall is bigger (275/35) that's where you are getting some extra room???

Spacers

Here's a before shot and a couple of after shots. The difference is subtle but looks loads better, more aligned now with the front.

I went with 10mm's in the rear as well. I didnt want to risk rubbing with the 12mm, but I think 12mm would be ok. IND recommended the 10mm's as well so I went with them
