Wheel Spacers question

I have replica CSL rims and I wsa looking to get some hub centric wheel spacers for the back. Anyone know if the center bore on these wheels are the same as stock wheels? If not I guess i need an adapter ring?

Also, if anyone with CSL wheels has done this, what is the largest size I can use so it wont go out past the fender?

As long as those wheels have a center bore sizing of 72.6 (which I would imagine they do) then you will be fine.

As far as what size spacer to use, this is a very useful tool for figuring out spacer sizing:

The good thing about this is you can measure exactly what size you need so you do not end up buying a size that wont work for your car.

OP...would you happen to have specs on the wheels that you are trying to put onto your E46 M3?
Depending on the offset and wheel width you may or may not need spacers. As for centerbore... would suggest you try to mount them onto the hub and if it fits snug without large amount of play then they are hubcentric (72.56). If you find that there is a lot of wobble then you may need hub centric rings that go from a 74.1 to a 72.56.
