Opinions on wheel spacers

So i recently picked up a set of miro 380 staggered 18x8 and 18x9.

I am going to throw them on soon with 225 front and 255 rear tires.

I want a more aggressive look and am thinking about wheel spacers.

Because i dont know much about the subject i was looking to get some opinions from people who either know about it or have done it on their e90s

Id like to go as wide as 25-30mm in the back and probably 15-20mm in the front (i think that would look correct, right?)


I obviously do not want any rub, how ever i very rarely have people in my back seat.

I have an e90 335i with sport pkg that is no lower than it comes from the factory in said configuration.

You will need to put the wheels on and then see how much space is remaining. Here is a link to help you! I have some on my E91 and haven't had any trouble, don't forget to get longer wheel studs.

I would predict that 20mm is about the most you could manage without rubbing (unless you roll your arches of course).

You won't be able to fit much more than 12mm up front and maybe 15mm rear unless you start adding camber, I think. But that depends on what the base offsets of those wheels are.

I apologize I should have included the offsets. Et35 front and 38 rear.

So looks like I should go about 20mm rear max and 12mm front max? Hm. I guess I'll just put the wheels on first and then see how much space I have.

Thanks, I am not looking to roll my arches so hopefully I can do 20 in the back as I'd really like to!
