  • Help Need with Correct Wheel Spacer Sizing.

    Hi guys, I've recently found a set of 18" BBS LMs down here in New Zealand for a pretty good price so I decided to take plunge and buy them with the hope I could get them to fit my E30 M3.
    I searched the forum and found a lot of discussion on the LM rim but not much in the way of fitment ( so apologies about yet another BBS LM thread :ha: )
    So my rims are... BBS LMs, Fronts 18x8.5" ET30 , Rears 18x9.5 ET34 , I'm a big time novice when it comes to offsets and correct tire selection for rim widths and profiles so I'm hoping some of you guys can help me out here.
    I'm guessing I'm going to need spacers so that the wheels don't rub, can any of you recommend the correct width spacer I will need to make these work and still have a good stance?. Would good tire sizes be 225/35/18 Front and 255/30/18 Rear? ( assuming they make tires in those sizes? )
    Thanks a lot guys, Ollie.

        No i don't know him--but he can't have any rubbing issues
        he lives in germany and if there were any signs from rubbing on the tires he wouldn't pass our TÜV control or would get much trouble if he comes into a police control.
        But i think for the rears he must have rolled then inside lips from the fenders.

          Do you think I would need to buy longer wheel bolts as I'm adding 15mm spacers to the rear and 5mm to the front?.
          Thanks again.

            if you use spacers you always needs longer bolts!
