Welcome to the Forums and thank you for your comments about the F10 posters, BigDeep1.

I have the same 2012 535i Sedan and wheels referenced in your picture.

I went to ecstuning.com and purchased spacers to line up my wheels flush with the fenders.

ECSTuning.com offers a great video on how to accurately measure the offset to choose the appropriate width spacers to acomplish a flush mount wheel with the fender.

I used 15mm in the rear and and 5mm in the front. You will need to purchase longer, conical seat, wheel bolts for the front and rear spacers respectively. This is a must, as the original wheel bolts will be too short for a secure fit.

Here are the part numbers and prices for each:


Front:

BMW Wheel Spacers Kit - 5mm ES#11296
Aluminum wheel spacers, made specifically for your BMW
ECS#252KT 2 @ $44.95 each.

Conical Seat 14x1.25x35mm Wheel Bolt - Priced Each ES#2550110
Black zinc conical seat bolts for your German automobile
C17F35-ZNNITT 10 @ $2.00 each


Rear:

BMW Wheel Spacer Kit - 15mm ES#11299
Aluminum wheel spacers, made specifically for your BMW
ECS#255KT 2 @ $84.95 each.

Conical Seat 14x1.25x43mm Wheel Bolt - Priced Each ES#2550132
Black zinc conical seat bolts for your German automobile
C17F43-ZNNITT 10 @ $2.89 each

I'm very happy with the outcome. You do not need to have a new front end alignment. I've experienced no problems whatsoever with vibration at any given speed, highway/in town and am very pleased with the outcome and appearance.

Hope this helps.
