I just picked them up - I got two 15mm spacers, so I'll put them in the rear. I also got the BavAuto camber kit for the rear. That will help pull the top of the wheel back out where it should be.

Here are some crappy cell phone pics on the way into work.

15mm rear spacers. I'll need something up front eventually, but if I don't sell my spare rear tires I might run a square 8.5" setup. So, I'll wait till then and see what size spacers I need up front.

Hopefully my camber correction kit will bring out the rear a bit more.

A note about 10mm spacers: Any 10mm spacer is considered a custom fitment. The stock hubcentric lip on BMWs can stick out by as much as 11mm. This leaves a gap between the spacer and the hub which seriously compromises safety. We recommend using a larger spacer (12mm and larger do not have this issue) or check that the lip sticks out less than 10mm.
It's not that big of a deal, but I'd go with 12's just for that extra comfort.

Ah okay... well I had H&R 10mm & 20mm spacers before and I know that there is less lip on the 10mm spacer but it never gave me any problems.

Only picture I have on my phone right now. I'll go outside and take a few shots after work.
15mm rear, and I have 12 in the front.

This is a shot of the rear, on Eibach Sportline suspension.




(yes, I know the idiots put the wheel weights on the outside. Trust me. I know it's there.)

It's 15mm front. I have that spacer setup for my regular wheels, and just left them on when I ran the m68s temporarily. I need the 15mm to clear the bbk, and I run the 12mm just to look a little better lol
