Spacer Help

I'm a first timer here, so I hope I'm not breaching protocol by throwing a redundant post out here. On my 07 750i, I have a staggered setup with 21 x 9 upfront with 245 35 21 tires and ET15 offset, rears are 21 x 10.5 with 285/30/21 and Et20 offset. I'm looking to do 12 mm spacers in the front and 15mm in the rear. Does anyone know if these will fit without causing problems?

Measure the distance from the outermost part of the wheels/tires and the innermost part of the fenders and you'll have your answer. If your car is not dropped chances are you'll be okay. But do the measurements because it all depends on how far out your offset already has the wheels. And welcome!

I've heard from a few members that the largest spacer you can run on the rear of a 750 is a 10mm, without rolling fenders and with no rubbing. HOWEVER, the method jenkx mentioned is probably the best way to go
