LOL I saw a dodge neon the other day with a aluminum spoiler sqwaking his tires everywhere i had to laugh. Speaking of wheel spacers I have my AvantGarde M310s sitting in my garage they are 19x8.5(+35) and 19x9.5(+43) What size spacer will i need to get the wheels flush on my 09 535xi?

I would test fit them, but the fronts should fit without an issue (+35 is the factory offset for Xi), the rears may need a 5-10mm spacer. Test fit, see if it rubs, if it doesn't you might be good to go.

DON'T do eBay. I got one professionally installed by bmwchop and the tape started peeling up on day 2. I am now scheduling an appt with BMW body shop to get a real m5 lip. Don't make my mistake.

You've posted this before, but there are way more instances of successful purchases and installations from BMWChop (mine included) than not! Your issue is obviously crappy installation prep on your installer's part.

Hey. No reason to be hostile. The guy just asked for opinions. Glad yours worked out, mine didn't. Installers are just fine.

This also will depend on the width of the wheels as well. My current wheels are 20X8.5 front, 20X10.5 rear, the fronts are pretty normal but a lot of wheel companies only make 20X10 rears for our cars. In order to go bigger you have to play with offsets, for instance a 20X11 wheel with a +20 offset will rub your strut.
Thanks a lot bro, this will be a very helpful tips on my wheel search..

No hostility intended...my bad if it came out that way, man However, I just didn't want the OP to think that the product is bad...it's pretty good for the price! No hard feelings...

On the XI, OEM 18" square setup is +43 for style 135 wheels, and OEM staggered 18" is +43 in the front and +55 in the rear for style 124 wheels. +35 will be close to flush up front. An 8mm or 10mm spacer in the rear would get you close to flush in the back. If you're lowered or going to be lowered you may not want to be as flush, as you may rub.
