Thumbs up F87 M2 Wheel Spacers Fitment Thread

Just thought I'd start a thread where we can share our wheel spacer fitments and how flush they sit to the fender.

They are pretty flush as is, we threw on a 5mm spacer on the front.

Geez, that's pretty close. How about the rear?

wow, that's awfully close. Thanks for measuring, I was hoping to run 12/15mm when lowered if possible. Looks like I would have to resort to 10mm all around.

Yeah, I think 5 mm front and rear is enough. Anything more than that and it will be outside the fender. I know some people like that look but it looks terrible in my opinion.

When you lowered yours, how much did they tuck in compared to stock?

Front tucked a bit so it looks like you can add maybe 10 mm up front when lowered. Don't know how that will work with turning etc as it is quite close as the car it low up front. The rear didn't tuck as much, would stick with 5 mm or something like that in the rear.

I will take some better photos when I get it back from the Ceramic Pro treatment.

I did try out 10 mm spacers on the rear wheels.
Mine is lowered with Mperformance coilovers.
10 mm is in my opinion too much. 5 mm would be perfect.
I left it as standard for the time being and its almost flush.
I have also read that a few members have up to 15 mm......the wheel sticks out already with the 10 mm.
For the front wheels I did not try. You will need a spacer with centre hub and therefore you will end up with 10 mm. 10 mm is to much what I could see.
Hope this info is usable for some.
Cheers

I put my 19x10 et 34 Works on the back, I wouldn't want to go any further than that. 5-6mm is perfect like you said. The front looks like it will be the same, 5-6mm for flush.

Thanks for the info, did you take any pics?

I am about to purchase some spacers and was under the impression that many have gone with 10mm and it sits flush not outside..

My Volks are on order. 23 offset in front and 34 in rear. Stock widths. Based upon this thread it sounds about right. Crossing my fingers.

Curious about measurements as well. I just about bought a set of 10mm & 12mm from Burger Motorsports before seeing this thread. If you could share what you found, that would be awesome.

Hey man. Measurements depend on what your trying to accomplish.

Those spacers will work out perfectly, although you should run the larger spacer up front.

A square track setup is looking like 275 square on 10's et 35 all around. But you'll need to run one of those spacers up front to clear the strut. 12mm is perfect for the front at that offset and width

That should be more than fine! The rears will be more aggressive than the front but it's close
