Spacer size on Advan RS wheels?

I want a slightly more aggressive stance for my M3, so I am thinking of adding spacers. I am currently lowered on Eibach Springs, and I have Advan RS wheels with these fitments: 19x9.0 and 19x10.0. Offsets: +22 Front +20 Rear.

I am running PS2's, 255/35 and 275/35.

What do you think is the maximum spacer size I could use without any rubbing issues at all? 5mm? 10mm?

nice wheels. I am thinking about getting those wheels also.

I have a question myself why did you go with that tire size? Could you have gone 265 (f) and 295(r) and had the same bump out without spacers?

Thanks. I went with 255 and 275 because i wanted the same staggered ratio as stock just incase it makes a difference with handling. Also, the wider tires are more expensive and i didn't want to lose more steering feel with wider front tires. Thinking about it now, maybe I should have went with wider tires.

I just want a slightly more aggressive stance and for the wheels to come out a bit more.

You could probably put a 10mm spacer in the front and 5mm in the rear judging from the pictures, but the best way to know for sure is to measure the distance between the tires and the fender to see how much clearance you have left with your tires.

I'm interested to see your final decision because I have the exact same wheel/tire size/spring setup and want to go a little more aggressive as well.
