Sedan wheel spacers

I'm looking into running 10mm front and 15mm rear, I'm lowered on Tein S-Tech springs (1.6"f,.7"r) and have 19x8.5 et40 VMR vb3 wheels on 225/35/19 tires and don't want to have to roll my fenders

19x8.5 ET25 is getting pretty aggressive on a non M E46. Have you measured clearances, you'll get a good idea of what will or will not clear on your car with your current alignment specs if you use the methods in the video below.

Will rub if you have company in the backseat.

That's more aggressive than we recommend, perhaps go for a smaller spacer to ensure you won't rub. Measure how much clearance you have an go from there.

Measure clearance then purchase spacers that allow for clearance you measured without rubbing
