Is it lowered? Lowered F10s can run bigger spacers, because the wheels cambers in. I got 10mm on the front and 18mm in the rear.

The BMS spacers are pretty nice. They have a nice slot to stick a flat head screwdriver in to pry them off should they get stuck to your hub. My rear spacers are H&R and I have found this to be an issue sometimes. Wished both my front and rear were BMS, but I got a deal on the H&R's.

Bake,

You think 18mm spacers for stock Msport rims is to much? I'm deff going with 12mm for front, just can't make up my mind for back if I want to go 15mm or 18mm.

I had 18mm on my stock 19's and liked the look. It's an aggressive look for sure. If you decide to go with 18mm, I have them in the for sale section pretty cheap. I'm no longer running stock wheels.

It is all personal preference. Personally I am happy with 10mm in the front and 15mm rears. Sits flush to me. I have ACS springs but they are not installed yet, so can't comment on how they will look once the car is lowered. Lowered cars have a bit of negative camber so 12mm/18mm might be a bit better for that. I am only running them for winter anyway cause my 20" summer wheels should be pretty flush.

I've had good luck with these. Both with stock wheels and aftermarket on my E60 and F10. I have these in 5mm on my front wheels now.

No spacers with the HRE. The spacers are on the OEM 351M that I use as winters.

I recently put on a set of ECSTuning spacers on my staggered 19" 351M winter setup to make it alittle more flush. Went with 10MM up front and 15MM in the back. If i did it over again I would have went 12MM up front with 18MM in the rear. Since I am running 245 winter tires all around my rear still has plenty of room left before it is flush with the fenders.

BTW I am dropped on ACS springs as well.

Ahh there is the difference! The rear 351M wheel is 9" wide with a 44 offset, so compared to a 8.5" wheel with a 33 offset, it will sit about 5mm "in" as compared to a non staggered setup (assuming the same size tire is mounted on both). Even though my car is a RWD, I sourced a non-staggered 351M set so that I would be able to rotate my tires front to back each season and extend the life of my tires. That might explain why your rears are not completely flush and you think you can move up to 18mm.

What brand?
Rs technik. I agree with the poster above-my car was lowered so the negative camber helped

I initially just had 15mm spacers on the rear. I lowered the car on ACS and decided to add 10mm spacers to the front. I am not that happy with the results as I feel like the front is more flush (if not a little wide) compared to my rears. Before the rear had a wider look, but the front spacer made it look square.

I get it that lowering the car pushes the camber in. I got an alignment and my front sits perfectly straight while the rear is still toed (BMW design).

I think I will go with a 18mm or 20mm on the rear. I have a factory 19" staggered set-up.

Btw, if you are selling a 18mm or 20mm spacer, let me know. I have the more expensive 15mm spacers on now. Anyone interested to buy or trade?
