18mm in the rear will most likely rub. I wouldnt go bigger than 15mm.

I have 15mm in the rear, and 18mm in the front no rubbing at all. Car handles fantastic.

Why don't you want spacers up front? Its gonna look like crap! Thats where the M3 need it the most I think. Lookwise, OEM looks way too sunk.

For the best most aggressive look, definitely throw a set up front as well..

Here's 18mm up front, sans bumper:




We're also using a 15mm spacer in the rear.
