Wheel Spacers for 2011 335d with M pkg 18 inch M rims

I've got the M pkg with M 18's but I want to push them out a bit to fill out the wheel well. What size spacers could I use where I won't have to change wheel lugs?

I don't know that you be able to fit anything above 3-5mm without needed longer bolts. If you do you run the risk of something catostropic happening.

I guess I should point out that when I had my stock 335d 18 inch sport package wheels on the car I put hr spacers on my car with the longer bolts and I had no rubbing issues. 10 in the front and 20 in the rear. I did have to have my rear fenders rolled though. IIRC your M sport wheels have the same dimensions as mine did so you should be good.

I believe that Terry from JB wrote me an email stating that 12mm up front and 15mm rear for car w/o staggred wheels if not mistaken, please seek advice from tire companies if possible

The hub centric spacers that I have run on other cars have some minor vibration at higher hwy speeds. Why not buy some replicas with a more aggressive offset?
