Stock wheels and coilovers without spacers

Looking to upgrade to coilovers, but am concerned that the spring/perch will interfere with the high offset of the stock wheels on the front. I do not want to run spacers.

Which coilovers will clear the stock 135i wheels without spacers? I'm sure someone here has to have experience with this. Pictures of the clearance between the wheel/tire and strut would be very helpful.

Thanks!

There is no problem with clearance without a spacer. I don't have any pictures, but it's about 1/8" with our suspension, it will fit without issues.

Single adjustable recommendation --> http://www.tcklineracing.com/webdocs.../Details17.cfm

Double adjustable recommendation --> http://www.tcklineracing.com/webdocs...Details159.cfm

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask

I have a small spacer in the front (3mm) just for some breathing room with my ohlins. upon reflection, I probably should have gone for the 5's or 10's, but I figure I'll just make it up in offset with whatever wheels I end up with.

Thanks for the replies.

Anyone have experience with fitting stock wheels with H&R or KW coilovers?
