Spacer Question

Hey guys I'm looking into getting spacers for the front wheels. The rears are perfect.

My wheel setup is:

Front Size 20x8.5 tire 245/35/20
Offset 33

Rear Size 20x10 tire 285/30/20
Offset ET 35

Bolt Pattern 5x120
Hub Bore 72.6

Car is 2012 528i stock suspension, no sport or Xdrive. What do you guys recommend? I read 12mm up front will be perfect and flush but wanted to be sure.

Thanks

You can easily go with a 12. It will get you flush

I am running 10mm spacers with an 8.5" wheel and 33 offset and find it to be flush for my taste. Don't think you can go wrong with either 10mm or 12mm, but you don't want your fronts to stick out more than your rears.

Check your gap, and then purchase the appropriate spacers.

I feel spacers are more "needed" when dropped, but sure you can but in spacers. I'd start with the rear.

Yes, I installed my spacers before I did my ACS springs and it made the car look 10x better. Was running spacers on stock suspension for about 8 months.
