any rubs / issues on the following tire/wheel/spacer configuration ??

rims are stock Front 18 x 7.5--47 offset and Rears 18 x 8.5 --49 offset.

will replace original RFT to Bridgestones 225/40/18 and 255/35/18.

I will also put 12mm spacer front and 15mm spacer rears.

Any chance this will rub or have some issues ? I'm hoping it wont look too funny.

Thanks much.

Capri

If thats the case, i wont install the spacer. Or just put 12mm spacers @ the rears. Front= no spacer.

I would recommend smaller spacers. ~5-10mm.

I just put 12mm fronts and 15mm rears on mine.

Not sure of my tire sizes compared to yours, but there's absolutely no rubbing at all.

IMO spacers are always worth the money because you may not need them now but you probably will at some point. And you could also run 12mm's in the back and none in the front too.

Not to mention they hold their value pretty well. I say go for it and report back

For anybody searching this....

'13 135i M-Sport, 261 wheels, stocks size Pilot Sport AS3's, 12mm spacer F and 15mm spacer rear.

Rubs in front :/

Read at least 3 threads saying it wouldn't, and ignored the 10F 12R recommendation on BMS website. Mistake is mine. Definitely rubs on this setup.
