you may want to be more specific... OEM tire sizes? Suspension work? Generally guys run a 12 f / 15 r setup for a nice aggressive fit.

usually its the other way around. the thicker spacer goes on the front so 15f and 12r is what i ran when i had the e90.

never had that issue but as soon as i started tracking the car and switching wheels i quit using them as its a pain to take off with any speed. sometimes a lot of swearing and sweating to get them off, thats what she said.

15F/12R is recommended for most stock setups, assuming you are still on stock Continential or PSS. Pirellis can run a bit wider.

Turner spacers are probably the easiest to take off as they have notches to allow them to be pried off rather easily.

Im running MS 15f/12r on my stock ZCP's with p-zero's. No issues with vibration or anything. Prior to install, i put on some anti-seize to make un-installing easier if I were to take them off.

15F/12R is what we normally recommend as well.

I'm running 15f/12r Turner's. No vibration. Yes, the slots do make it a lot easier to remove them. I also use an anti-seize compound as well.
