5mm spacers (fine for front/rear)
10mm spacers (front only)
12mm spacers (front only)
15mm+ spacers (fine for front or rear)
*NEW* - H&R is soon to release a 13mm spacer that will work on the rear for the F30
After a lot of back and forth, I am thinking a 13mm+ spacer is still too much for thge OEM stock setup. I'm fairly certain I will settle on a 5mm spacer for front + rear.
FOTIO - FYI - I was able to cancel my 12/15mm purchase, so will likely go w/ a 5mm setup. Tend to agree with you - stock setup only needs a bit of a spacer to help w/ the flush/classy look.
If they release a 13 mm for rear I think it's the way to go for me.
I ordered a 2013 335i M Pack 19 inch wheels. For winter, if I go with 235-40r19 all around, I have to put 12-13 mm rear spacers to get the exact same tracking. Don't forget that BMW staggered wheels are 6 mm in vs standard rear wheels.
