Do wheel spacers make a difference?

Forgive me for being a newb, but just wondering if wheel spacers really make a difference in the ride. I gots an e92 M3 6 MT. Can you really tell if the car looks better w/ 15 mm spacers. What's the widest spacers people have gotten away with with stock 19 inch wheels? Appreciate any input.
