Wheel spacers.

I'm looking for a little wider stance on a 2000 323i. No plans on suspension just yet. I'm thinking 15mm in the rear and 12mm up front.
Y'all think this is too much for non altered suspension with factory spot wheels?

The best way to figure that out is to drop a plumb line off the edge of your fender and measure the distance between the line and your existing wheel.

I run 35mm on the rear and 25 on the front with very little rubbing on a 1.5/1" drop and 16x7 ET47 wheels

If you measure don't do it wrong like i did. Measure from the inner fender lip, not the outer...I would be perfect and no rubbing with 30mm on the rear.

Unless you opt for a higher-end kit (i.e. those offered by Black Forest Industries) with an easy-removal notch, apply a thin coat of Anti-Seize to the Rotor Hat (not the braking surface, of course).

This will do the trick:

I have a pair of 25s and 35s forged aluminum with black coating bolt-on style with lugs for sale if anyone wants them... They will make your ugly style 44s fit snug af
