I got 8 full turns on the fronts and 9 turns on the rears. BTW, ECS has (at least had) the best pricing on the H&R spacers and wheel bolts.
I ended up getting 10mm ECS spacers with included bolts for the front; and 13mm HR for the back with 40mm bolts.
I would probably go with the same brand all around but ECS does not have 13mm and HRs 10mm were back order. Ill have little color mismatch...

My opinion:
10mm in front is perfect, 15mm in rear is a bit to aggressive but flush with my stock bubble tires. With different tires it could be perfect.

12mm would have been perfect but H&R only makes 5mm, 15mm & 20mm for rear. 5mm, 10mm, 13mm, 15mm, 20mm front. 12mm rear is supposedly not safe but some have done it anyway with different brands. You can read why by searching this form.

H&R Sport springs:
I feel less body role, slightly stiffer but comfortable and the sport drop looks sporty and classy. My car has not bottomed out on big pumps but my biggest issue is with small road fluctuations. The front end seams to bounce a bit. Bounce is a little to strong a word but its bad enough that I will eventually change to coil overs.

Overall I'm happy considering the look for the low cost.
Nice! Is 10mm pretty flush? I'm debating wether I would get 5mm in front or is the stock bubble tire just deceiving me on the last pic

~ I agree I think the 10 front & 12 rears are the right look ... without being overly aggressive.

I ran a 10/12 setup on my stock 18s. If you're lowered, a 15mm in the rear will rub

I run 10/12 BMS spacers on my F36 with stock suspension. With the Pirelli runflat sidewall profile which extends past the wheel edge this setup is perfectly flush up front and just a bit recessed in the rear. I imagine tires with a sidewall that does not protrude out as far as the Pirellis you can do 12/15 without any poke. Once I lower my car about 1" with coilovers, I will see if 12/15 works. Note that I am very conservative and do not like any poke at all.

Here is a shot of car:

Any vibration issues on the 10mm F and 12Mm R combo?

No vibrations using the Burger spacers.

sorry for bumping a super old thread, but is it established that its unsafe to run a 5mm or 8mm spacer in the rear? seems to be some back and forth on that on this thread, but no one has attempted to run such a small spacer.

i will be lowered, running 18x8.5 et35 sq setup with 255/40 tires. i believe the rears will need just a tiny bit of pushing out.

i have a set of h&r 5mm spacers id like to put on...

I would say take a wheel off, install a 5mm spacer and see for yourself how much hub (or lack of) your wheel has to purchase on. Then decide if you feel comfortable driving like that.

Personally there's no way I would ever install a 5mm or 8mm spacer.
