BMW 745 eibach spacers
 
I currently have my car lowered on eibach springs. I'm thinking about adding 15mm front and 20 mm rear eibach spacers. I'm running 20" style 32 wheels 20x9 & 20x10. 245/45/20 front & 275/40/20 rear tires. Will the spacer setup work without any issues? I do not want to roll my fenders. Can anyone give me confirmation on this set up? I've done alot of research and get mixed answers on the forum. Any input would be greatly appreciated.Thank you.

You will be fine. I ran 20mm spacers front and back when I used to have 20"wheels and was dropped on H&Rs.

Here's some pictures. Before the drop I didn't need spacers as much as I did after the drop. There is a link on here somewhere on how to measure exactly what size spacers you need. I'll try and find it and message it to you. I would have loved to run 25mm in the front and 30mm in the back. Make sure to also buy the longer lugnuts as well.

This looks awesome. What are you lowered on?

Thanks for the input! Your car looks slammed. Those are h&r springs? Nice set up!

Alpine745li 09-08-2012 10:46 AM

So my tires which are 45 front and 40 rear wont hit the fender? Your tires look really low profile.

Thank you bro! Those wheels are MRR Wheels HR6 model. I think besides the OEM 20" wheels these are the best option to have on a big body car like ours. If you look in my pictures I have had them for a while before I bought TXstyle wheels about a year ago.

What are the specs on the tires. They look really low profile. Are they 40 front and 35 rear?

Thanks for the info. I think 15 front and 20 rear spacers will be good for my set up. Your ride is clean!:thumbup:

I have style 32 wheels on 20mm front 25mm rear. I have rolled fenders, and did have to make a few minor changes to the fender liner in the front

So my set up should work without rolling the fenders? My tires are 45 front and 40 rear. Higher than normal. Do you have pics of your set up? I would like to see 20mm and 25 mm on a 745. Thanks for the info.

Alpine745li 09-27-2012 07:29 PM

Just installed my eIbach spacers 15mm front and 20mm rear. The look is night and day, "hella flush!" Thanks for all the help and info. Now I'm rolling knowing the car beside me only see's wheel and no gap. Geah!

I'm running the same tire set up as you. The eibach spacers come with longer lugs for the front 15mm spacers. The rear 20mm spacers come with lugs to bolt the spacer onto the hub, than you need another set of lugs to bolt the wheel onto the spacer. My lugs that were on my wheels were to long so they just switched the lugs and it bolted on perfectly. Can anyone confirm if the ECS or H&R spacers need just 10 lugs total? The eibachs need 20 lugs for the 20mm. The ride is smooth and the look is noticably sportier. No ugly sunken in wheels. Geah!!

Do those spacers bolt onto the Hub? Or do they just sit flat on the hub and the wheels bolt onto the spacer and hub? Eibach 20mm spacers have to use a total of 10 Lugs on each side. 20 on the rear total!
