Spacers on 18" OEM

I'm looking for a more aggressive look to go along with my stock 18" OEM E92 M3 setup, but couldn't find any posts (or pics) of anything other than aftermarket setups. Ideally, I'd like the rear wheels pushed out a bit and the fronts to be flush.

Actually, ideally, I'd like a new set of wheels, but priorities dictate otherwise.

I read the sticky on spacers, great info. I'm looking to hear from someone that has done the same, what they did, how the results were, and pics are always welcome

Very nice! Any issues with 12.5mm all around? Rubbing, etc? If you have any straight-on rear shots, would like to see how the stance looks from the back.

Also, would like to see pics of other OEM + spacers setups to see the difference in the look.

Tons of threads if you use the search, this has been covered time and time again...

I think most people go for 15mm up front and 12/15mm on the rear if my memory serves me correct. I'm sure someone else will chime in if i'm wrong.

Otherwise the route i would go is to measure your own arch and use your brain to calculate the correct sized spacer to get the desired look you want!

No issues at all with 12.5mm all around. However, if you want to be completely flush you will want to go more aggressive. Something like 18/15 f/r.
