Wheel spacers

I might have to wait a while for new wheels but in the mean time I was doing some thinking about wheel spacers. I'm going to keep my 124s for a while but I would like to install a set of spacers for a better appearance. My wheelwells really eat up my wheels. Especially from certain angles. I was wondering what sizes I would need both front and rear. Also are there any cons from installing spacers any drawbacks? Thanks in advance.

Lots of info here. http://www.turnermotorsport.com/t-wheel-spacers.aspx My E61 came with spacers (don't know what size) from Turner when I bought the car used. I assume there are longer studs on my car as well, need enough thread to be safe.

I got my wheel spacers from turner motor sport as well.
my current setup- 19" ROHANA RC10 19X8.5 FRONT with Turner 15mm spacer AND 19X9.5 with 17.5mm spacer.
I even have a little more room to play with so I might move the 17.5mm in the front and place 20mm in the rear.

I have a set of Turner Motorsport 15mm spacers that I am looking to sell. I had them with the style 172 wheels that came with my 550i. I only had them on my car for one week before I bought new rims. Send me a PM if you would like more info. I also have the longer studs.

OP i am getting spacers for my car and i plan on doing 20mm in the rear and 10mm in the front. I hear 12mm rubs in the front a little when you do sharp turns with the sport suspension.

If the 124's are staggered then do 18mm or 20mm in the rear.
