This is definitely a valid concern. We very rarely hear of this, but when we do, it is typically due to one or more of the following reasons:

- Poorly machined spacers by no-name/eBay company
- Installing 10mm hubcentric spacers that do not seat properly over the vehicle's hub (see our article on this)
- Installing non-hub-centric and/or not wheel centric spacers
- Worn suspension components that only show their age under the added stress of a reduced wheel offset
- Slightly bent wheel that is only felt after the offset is reduced with spacers

We've run spacers on our own track cars here for years without any issues. If the proper parts are used and installed properly, there's no reason for any vibration to occur, and all of our spacers are machined to tightly fit 72.56mm BMW center bores.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions!

I'm running 19" ZCPs on my e92 m3. I will like a more flush fitting adding spacers. Tire sizes are 275/255. What is the recommendation for spacer size and do I need longer wheel lugs? Thanks

Thanks for the post! Many are running 15mm front and 12mm rear spacers with no issues. Extended hardware is required any time spacers are used in order to maintain proper/safe thread engagement.

We carry both extended bolts and stud kits on our website, with all the appropriate lengths listed for each spacer size.

Bolts can be found here: https://www.apexraceparts.com/access...eel-locks.html

Stud conversions can be found here: https://www.apexraceparts.com/access...stud-kits.html

That definitely sounds like installer error.

I have various spacers ranging from 10-15mm of no-name brand to other popular brands used on these forums. I've had them installed for years on multiple BMWs. No vibrations whatsoever.

Be a dick? I simply stated the obvious and you felt the need to defend your glaring insecurity with a lengthy tirade about your personal "skillset."

Good luck installing your future spacers.

Maybe I should have added more smiley faces and hearts? Gotta be extra careful when walking on eggshells, right?

smiley faces and hearts definitely help but we all should just not get our undies in a bunch and help each other enjoy our awesome M3s! Life too short to get mad on the internet, use that time to fix the vibrations and go out for a drive!

Thanks for the question! We generally recommend the 75mm stud kit for any spacer kit 12mm or less and the 90mm kit for any spacers 15mm or larger. In your case, I would recommend the 90mm kit. There aren't any significant downsides to running the longer studs and the 12mm spacer is enough to prevent the studs from protruding too much.

Thanks
