Wheel spacer info needed 2016 M2

Hi all this is my first post here as I have recently purchased a 2016 M2. I have lowered the car with eibach springs and fitted new ps4s tyres. Now that the car is lowered I think wheel spacers are needed.
I have gone to the next size width in tyres

255 front
275 rear

If anyone runs this setup what wheel spacers have you fit so that there is no rubbing?

Cheers
Chris

Not sure about spacers but with Vorsteiner VFF wheels I fit 265 fronts and 285 rears (Cup 2s) without rubbing so that size should be possible...

ECS tuning has a wheel spacer fitment kit that you can rent. You just pay full price for it, they ship it to you, and then ship it back when you're done for a full refund minus a small rental fee.

It has plates in varying sizes so you can get an idea of what you need. You cant drive on them, but it should get you in the ballpark for the size spacers you'll want to order.

Best bet is to just buy a couple different sizes and see what works best. You can always resell the sizes you don't use.

I would imagine you’d be able to get no more than 10mm to fit?

I was under the impression that it was illegal in Australia to run spacers unless factory fitted, is that not the case?

I use a 10mm spacer on the front (245) and nothing on the rear (275)
On the track I use 265 (with spacer) and 295. Car is lowered on H & R

How do you find the handling with the KW HAS kit? Is it more confidence inspiring for the spirited drives or do you feel like you can push harder with the OEM springs?

The stock ride is better, more compliant on bumpy uneven roads. Maybe once I upgrade the shocks as well the dampening will be more in sync

Do you find any difference compared to the stock springs when cornering? Or is just a bit more bumpy in general?

More bumpy on roads that aren't smooth surface, otherwise ok around town
