what do you mean by extreme spacing lol?
I have seen 70mm spacers, used safely..
maybe just a joke?
it looks great btw.. I am more of a stance/fitted guy, but the overall look improved a lot over stock!

I did the same on mine and my girls m3's, I did 30mm rears on 265/30/19 tires..
and fronts i ordered 30mm too but I need to get 20mm's and need smaller tires, probably 235/30/19's would look good. and add about -2 camber.

I also appreciate a nice fit or flush stance. But I find
this looks much more aggressive and menacing.

Not extreme at all... My old M3 was like that and my current RS5. M3 did rub over big bumps in the rear though...

supposed to be larger in front than the rear...but ok.

18/15, 15/12, etc... You wanna be extreme do 20/15 instead of how you have it.

how do you rationalize that? and why is it suposed to be?
shouldnt the spacer size be equivalent to how much spacing he needs according to what wheels hes running?
theres no rule to spacing lol... If you space out stock M3 wheels, and want them to be flush, 25 front and 30mm rear would be just right..

Actually i'm not rationalizing anything... Maybe "Supposed to" was the wrong choice of words, rather what is "most commonly used" was what i was referring to.

25f and 30r with OEM sizes? LOL...good luck with that. some folks rub with 18/15 on a lowered suspension. Hence my post....

ah, I guess it has to do with tire size choice!
in Op's case he wants fatty tires so he prob cant do even 20mm rears. I run 30mm rears with no problem..
