Spacers for M??
 
3 Attachment(s)
Just upgraded to an M about 2 weeks ago. WIth winter coming up i want to tuck the 19's away and throw on the 17' winter set-up i had on my 330ci but im not sure what size spacers i need to clear the breaks or if i need spacers in both front and back. Also i have csl m3 brakes* installed which adds to the confusion. Here are pics of the 19's and the 17' asa's i want to replace them with(all 4 rims are 7.5 inch's wide and all 4 tires are 205/50/17) Any help will be appreciated. Thanks:thumbsup:

you might be SOL with clearance on the CSL rotors and 17s. 17s barely cleared the OEM size as I recall...
Testfit and look?

Brakes, not breaks.

Test fit. If they clear, go to the hardware store and pick up a bunch of large nuts and washers to space the wheel out. You can get away with putting them on 3 points on the wheel. Get the car off the ground, bolt the wheel up with different combinations of washers and and nuts until you get proper clearances. Measure the thickness.

So if they do fit purchasing spacers from let's say.. bimmian wouldn't suffice?
