Spacer recommendations needed

Looking for recommendations (vendors welcome) on what spacers to purchase as well as where to purchase them.
Looking for 10mm rear, 15 mm front based on crude measurements and searching through the forums.
Currently: Stock wheels, stock spring size, mild lowering, increased negative camber (~-1.2). Trying to stuff the widest tires I can on them without the inner spring clearance issues. Also have plans to run rear wheels up front with 245s on them if I can find some cheap. The flush look is a bonus, but not my goal.

Looks like there's plenty of specials on things now, but I'd like some recommendations first.

Take a look at the TMS spacers from Turner Motorsports. They are high quality spacers that fit perfectly and can be ordered with the correct length bolts.

The E92 spacers on their webpage will fit our cars.

Send a message via AIM to SV Concepts III
We've carried H&R TRACK+ Spacers for several years now and continue to stick with them given H&R's reputation for quality. They are German made, TUV approved and built to withstand track or street use. H&R has been in the industry since the early 70's which certainly speaks to their experience and reputation for high quality suspension upgrades. All of their spacers are made from magnesium alloy and we now offer them with silver or black bolts to match an OE look.

Macht Schnell has some serious lightweight spacers that wont break the bank as well as comes with the bolts, so there's no confusion on what to purchase with them. We've been selling kits at great numbers for quite some time now, so I suggest you take a look at Macht Schnell.

If you have any questions, PM me direct and I'll help you out with your spacer choices

Interested too for spacers. Is it better to put same size on front and rear or? Thanks!

I can get you a set!

As far as running the same size all around, it doesn't make a difference. As long as the wheel wells are filled out, which is the main purpose of the spacer, it doesn't make a difference on the change in sizes between the front and back.

I just installed my MachtSchnell spacers. 12mm front and 10mm rear. So far it looks awesome. At first I thought Im out too far but it's good. I have no rubbing, Im on stock suspension and tires.
