Wheel spacers fitment?

Running staggered style 67 18" on my 325i "Sedan"
The rears are pretty flush while the front is tucked in.
Measured the gap and I think a 15mm would put me close to matching the back while still leaving me room to not rub. If theres not a big difference between the 12.5mm and 15mm spacer I might just go 12 to be safe.

I was wanting to see if anyone else was running the same rims and what they did if anything. New tires on the rears and no one really has any fronts in my area that would trade for my rears. Adding bump stop spacers for the rubbing in the rear as its hitting the bumper bracket.

What's the question?

Buy 12's if you want to go safe or 15's if you want to be more flush. Gonna need 17.5's or 20's to make it look like the rear.

Thanks, ordered the 12.5mm spacers from ECS with the bolts.
Debating on trading my rears for fronts or just keeping the bump stops.

Khoalty. Only complaint is shipping. Fitment is amazing.
Removed the front license plate bracket and everything looks smooth.

Although like EVERY MtechII bumper I see, the left side hangs lower, going to work on that. I think theres a DIY fix somewhere maybe? It's enough to bother me a little, but not enough for me to jump on it when it's cold outside.
Although it is texas so...
