15mm spacers with 264's

i'm running the stocker 264's custom powdercoated and am looking to get spacers, got a good deal lined up on four 15mm spacers. i know this would work in the back but am skeptical for the front. i'm running stock tire size hankook ventus v12's.

Yeah i've seen that, but others have said they've ran 264 up front with 15mm spacers and im curious if they actually worked. So im gonna try them and if it doesnt work out i'll sell them and pick up 12mm ones.

yeah i think i'll like 15 in back but 15 front will be too aggressive. 12 front would probably be about right for me

These have 12mm spacers and 15mm spacers in the rear, stock tires & rims:
no mods.
According to JB Burger motorsports, they also recommend the 12mm / 15mm spacers.

Yeah i saw your thread, looks great. I'm gonna try the 15mm front, i think they'll work but im not sure if i'll like the look. If not i'll sell them and get 12mm front to match yours, because thats the perfect stance.

Got them mounted today, to clarify, 15mm spacers FIT PERFECT ALL AROUND, with Msport suspension at least. I did lock to lock turns, took her on turns hard, even got her sideways trying to see if they rub anywhere, but nope zero rubbing and they don't even stick out passed the fenders, perfectly flush. Will get pictures when its nice out one time.

Got her washed today just to show off




The only downside is i found out today i have a SLIGHT rub on the inside of the wheel well, when at extreme full lock the tire rubs a little bit on the plastic inside the wheel well.. I never use full lock as i don't feel its necessary most of the time so i'm leaving them since they look perfect

wow, looks very good. I assume the slight rub is on the front left or right wheel ? i think the 12mm front spacers would have been perfect just like my friend's 135i shown above.

yeah it was the front right that happened, but it only happens at the last 5 degree's or so of steering, and its a light rub so i'm not concerned with it. 12mm would of been what i went with if i bought new, but i got these used and i love how they look. i doubt the difference between 12 and 15mm spacers is very noticeable anyway.

Is that on a M Sport suspension or the non-M ones?

It looks like your suspension hasn't quite settled. I have M Sport as well but my car sits maybe an inch lower then that?

Spacers look great! Fronts are a bit aggressive for me, so I'll be running 12mm's on mine.
