Mein Auto: 2008 335i Sedan
Need some sage advise

I have a '08 335i Sedan with OEM 162 wheels, 8" front rolling on 225's (run flats) and 8.5" rear rolling on Falken 265's (radials). I want to put spacers all around without worrying about rubbing on turns or big dips but still have that close to "flush look". Any advise from those of you with experience...much appreciated. DonF.

Spacers should *only* be used as a last resort, like if you install coilovers and need to create another 10mm of suspension clearance or something like that. BMW engineers designed the suspension and wheel clearance the way they did for a good reason, and it`s a bad idea to alter the factory settings.
"Just say NO to spacers"....

Thank you for the advise....I think I've got enough problems as it is with my 335i (left intercooler and both turbos replaced in the past 2-months..t at 92K...thank God for extended warranties! ) to be concerned with "how much cooler I can make an already gorgeous car just that! I just have to find a good, trustworthy, independent, certified bimmer mechanic in the area so when I hit 100K and my warranty expires, I've got a good "doc" to bring my aging piece of art to....I do support WWP....R.L.T.W. 1/32, 7th ID and 75th.
