Spacers?

Any body know what size spacers I can put on to get rid of the doughnut spare tire look? I'm running Pirelli Sotozero's size 225/50 17"

20mm will probably get you at least flush.

Quality extended bolts are probably more important too.

What? 225 on the rear of an m3. Why? You would need like a 50mm adapter I guess from looking at the pic.

Why are you running 17" wheels with 225 section width tires on the back of an M3? The car should have 18" or 19" wheels, and the rear tires should be at a 255 mm section width. Proper sized wheels and tires will eliminate the space-saver spare look as well as drastically improve grip and handling.

Sorry, but what in the **** am I looking at? 225 in the back of an M3? How about no spacers, ditch those horrid wheels (the whole setup really) and put a proper setup on and then talk about spacers.

I'm sure the OP has figured out his rims/spacers in the last 10 months...
