My Ride: 2001 BMW 330ci
Which wheel spacer?!?!

Hey guys...I have an 01 330ci with stock wheels on it. They sit pretty far inside the fender and while I don't feel like spending the kind of money it would take to fill them out a bit more, I wouldn't mind the wheels coming out a bit further. I'm going to be upgrading to a 6 series in a couple of years so I don't want to spend much....Are there spacers wide enough to close the gap with these? Would they leave me with tons of vibration? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

don't know the offset on those oem wheels, but I have 12mm (4door) all the way around on my stock 119 wheels and it sits perfect lowered on cupkit... No rubbing!
I'd get the Rogue Engineering spacers they are LIGHT! I'd say 12mm up front for you and 15mm in back since coupe's have more room in the rear...

Make sure to get longer bolts of the right length (+12/+15mm)

i have 10mm all around in my stock 17's lowered with sport cup kit, H&R with longer bolts is what you need.

I would go with 10mm up front and 12-15mm in the rear, but make sure to measure it up first... All cars can be different in terms of how the suspension has been treated over it's lifetime. Feel free to check out the links below after you measure that up:
