My Ride: 2005 330ci zhp
Urgent Help with bbs ch & spacers needed!


Could anyone advise if I can put 10mm spacers in the rear of my ride and not have any rubbing.

Here is my setup:

2005 330ci zhp
Fenders rolled to the max (according to the local specialist who rolled them)
Wheels: 19Ē bbs ch 8.5 et35 all around
Tires: 235/35/19 all around

I am trying to purchase some spacers asap, and did the measuring part to figure out the gap, however I donít think that my results are accurate. If any one has a similar setup please help out.

...and I did use the search function of this forum but could not find anything.
Any help is greatly appreciated.

10mm spacers are a bit much. The wheels will be sitting more aggressive then a normal 9.5 +45 setup. I would recommend measuring the gap with a ruler to see how much room you have to work with. Each cars tire and alignment characteristics are different, so this is the best alternative in guaranteeing you purchase a spacer that would work with your car without rubbing issues.

I agree with Charles, I don't see the need for spacers with these sizes and offsets however you may be able to squeeze a 5mm in the rear. It really depends on the car, tire and alignment like Charles mentioned.
