Anyone has a SEDAN w/ Spacers?

Anybody has a sedan w/ spacers on the rear? If so, what's your wheel and spacer size. Does it rub? did you roll your fenders?

My Ride: be em veh
question is way to vague man, rubbing is gonna depend on what rims ure running what offset and size and what tire size

anyways, i got 5mm on top of +38 rims (8.5) with a 225 tire and its lowered pretty low and its barely clear (tho i think the bumper clip is getting in my way not the fender)

Sorry, let me provide the full detail. So, are you rubbing then? Did you roll?

ACS TypeIII 19x8.5 w/ 235/35/19 ContiContact Sports 2 tires
2002 330i w/ Sports Package
+ 7mm ACS spacer

I "believe" the offset of the rim is ET43 but don't know where to CONFIRM. and the ****ty thing is that apparently it only rubs on right turns too! @_@??? Or I just haven't had a change to make a sharper left turn since it's always easier to find a spot for right turns.

Did you get your fenders rolled? And is your car lowered?

If you haven't tried it yet, I would suggest rolling the fenders. You could also go to a 5mm H&R spacer. I am guessing that it rubs on a right turn and you are the only one in the car. So the rightside isn't under load, then the weight is transfered to the right side and it rubs.

I could be worng.
