Style 73: max spacer size?

Just bought a 2002 325xit with sport package. I Don't have de $$ to buy some nicer wheels, and I would say that I don't dislike the style 73.

However, some spacer would make my wagon more agressive at low cost. What would be the thickest without fenders rolling and tire rubbing?

I was thinking 15mm all around...

Thanks!

measuring is the best way to determine

Yeah, but in front, while turning and hitting a bump, its pretty hard to measure it

I will measure, but just wanted to know if anybody had any experience with that...

Spacers + lugs isn't much cheaper than a set of used wheels on craigslist.

not really, find an angled driveway, tuck wheel of choice, measure.

15mm all around should work fine at stock height though (did for me), but I don't want to suggest it and then you rub due to having a different alignment, height, etc. than me.

20mm spacers. That might be enough to have them sit flush. I ran 15mm with those and there was plenty of space.
