How big of a spacer will it take?

I'm about to purchase two 19x9.5 +33 and two 19x9.5 +40 for my M3.

I know I'm going to need spacers regardless to run these wheels but which will it take to make them sit flush while lowered on KW sleeve overs?

Thanks in advance

15mm front and rear should work nicely. Put the 33mm on the rear. Also depends significantly on what tires you will be using, however.

So should I run the +33 all around and not get the +40 at all?

I would recommend buying four 9.5et33 wheels and run a 12 mm spacer on the front and a 12-15 mm spacer on the rear. You could go slightly more aggressive on the rear but it depends on the tire you are using as well as the look you want (aggressive vs. functional). They don't make wheels with offsets designed specifically for the e9x M3?

One more thing, the KW clubsport coilovers have an interference issue with certain wheel widths/offsets but I don't know if the sleeve-over kit has wheel clearance issues.
