What size wheel spacers do I need?

I installed my raceland coilovers today on my 325i and Im not able to go past stock height without rubbing the adjustment and locking nut. Im running stock wheels, what size spacer do I need and where is the cheapest place to get them?

How much more space do you need to stop rubbing? If you can answer that question, then you know how much more space you need.

You will need new lug bolts. Or you could do a stud conversion, which is cheaper in the long run if you change your mind about what size spacers you want and also easier to put wheels on and off with because they don't fall off of that stupid lip while you're trying to get them back on. I've never tried putting a wheel on a car with spacers without studs, but I imagine its a bitch of a job.

Turner Motorsports and Bimmerworld are both great companies to buy from. There are others too.

Also keep in mind that if you add a spacer which is too big you will rub on your fender.

You should probably get rid of your raceland coilovers before the break.
