Volk Wheel Question

I have a new set of 19 inch Volk Magnesium Blue 19s on my Z4MC and I am going to use them on my E92 M3 and was wondering what spacers you would go with. I don't like the flush fad at all.

They are:

19x8.5 +35 with a 245/35/19 tire
19x9.5 +22 with a 275/30/19 tire

I like the stock 220 look lowered. So I could get away with running my H&R 5mm spacers front and rear to get the OEM look. I also have 10mm spacers with extended bolts I could use.

What do you guys recommend and why? Like I said I don't like the flush look at all. I am more conservative and like the stance of the OEM 19s on the E92 M3. I have a 1.5-2 inch drop front and rear.

Thanks.

Which OEM 19s are you referring to?

OEM 220M specs are 19x8.5 +29 and 19x9.5 +23. So if you are referring to those, then you really only need a 5mm spacer in the front to have similar fitting.

OEM 359 specs are 19x9 +31 and 19x10 +25. So if you are referring to those, then you would need roughly a 10mm in the front and 5mm in the rear, if my rough calculations are fairly accurate.

Best of luck!

Agree with flipm3's spacer selections if you are going for an OEM look - non-zcp (5 mm F, no R spacer) or zcp (10 mm F, 5 mm R).

Not interested in that fitment at all. I am going for a more OEM look/fitment with my Volks and they will work fine as I suspected.

i would go 18mm and 15mm. Without spacers it will just look really sunk in.

I was thinking 10mm front and 5mm rears. I don't want flush at all, incase I want to drop 3 inches.

I highly recommend going with the 12 front and 10 rear. These will not be an issue with any amount of drop.

what he said, i'm running 9.5/10.5 with +12mm offsets on a pretty low suspension, no crazy camber or stretched tires. that 5mm spacer isn't going to do anything. at the very least go 10mm rear, after you put it on you'll see how it's not even going to be an issue and that you could have gone more.

No problem. I am glad that you went that route. I am sure that you won't regret.
