Oem19" wheels, 255/35f, 275/35r, 12mm spacers

Hey guys just bought 08 e90 m3 and will be importing to Canada.

Tires will not pass safety inspection, so I will be ordering vreds sessanta in 255/35r19 and 275/35r19. Also would like to get spacers, 12mm f/r. I will be ordering to pick up in usa to avoid extra shipping, etc. So will not be able to measure car for fitment. From searching, I think fronts will be okay, not sure if rears will rub? No plans to mod susp. Thanks.

If you're still on OEM wheels and stock suspension you will have no problem fitting the tires and spacer combo.

Congrats on your new ride

I think you should be ok. Only reason to get the spacers would be to push the wheels out for a more aggresive stance

I got the TMS 12.5mm spacers from Acute and am very happy.

I tried the 12mm spacer on the front with my new 255 35 19 pilot super sports and it rubbed, had to take the spacer off. I think a 10mm should not rub. I am on 220m wheels as well

I'm running stock tire sizes on my 220m's. Dinan Stage 1 suspension and 15f, 12r macht schnells. No rubbing issues.

I have 12mm spacers on the rear with Michelin PSS 275/35/19 on stock 220 with stock suspension and they rub.

thanks for the replies.
C17, how much does it rub, would a 10mm spacer be okay? I should compare the specs on the PSS vs Vreds to see what actual width is.

I just ordered 10mm spacers.

It only rubs when the car goes over bumps. I can't hear it or feel it. I just see the mark on the tires and some rubber being scraped off on both rears.
