spacers question

Hello,

I am considering to have 225 all around tires so that I can rotate. Also, I will use 15 front/ 25-30 rear (to make up for the thinner tires and for the flush look). I saw on another thread that 15 works for the front. Does it work for this? do you think 15 for the front is too much for this situation?

I was wondering if anyone foresee any problems or additional stress issue.

This will be on sport springs 2001 330ci

Thanks

It's hard to say without knowing the specs for the wheels that you'll be using.

Put the tires on. Measure the gaps. Order spacers.

The best way to understand which size spacer you need, is to simply measure from the top outside edge of your tire to the inner lip of you fender. This will give you the best idea on how much size you have to work with, and to decide on how much your wheels need spaced.

Once you know that let us know and I will be able to recommend which size will be the best fit for your application.

Here is a diagram that might help as well.


We have a complete line of spacers available specifically for your vehicle below...

Please let us know if you have any questions! Feel free to shoot me a PM or email.

Best,
Joe
