I have a question about Wheel Spacers?

Will it damage or cause problems for my 97 Z3 Roadster if I install these on my car?

4 Pc BMW 10mm & 15mm Hub Centric Wheel Spacers Plus 20 Conical Lug Bolts Chrome.

I wander if there would be a problem with the wheel bearings or camber in the back?

If I recall..the standard Z3 wheel is @ +45mm offset. That means the wheel is 45mm pushed in toward the car as compared to zero offset if it was centered at the wheel bearing. What that means is that with the spacers you are pushing the wheel @ 3/8" and 5/8" toward the lip on the fender well...measure your current distance with your factory wheel/tire setup and see if you have that much space available before you hit the lip of the fender..

Thank you I'll do that, from eyeball it seamed to be OK but I'll take that precaution, I still wander if there would be a problem with the wheel bearings or camber in the back?
