Spacers on F36 Gran Coupe in Oz

Hi all,

Has anyone in Australia put spacers on their Gran Coupe? If so, what brand and were you able to source locally? After reading through many of the threads in the US, I see that some have had issues with the hub lip being too long. For me getting a wider stance is the next best thing to lowering, which I don't want to do because a) I'm leasing and b) I have the adaptive M Sport suspension. It seems that the best way to avoid any fitment problems is to take the wheels off and physically measure the hub. I really don't have the time nor the inclination to do this and was hoping that somebody here in Oz has already done the hard yards and got it sorted. Any info would be much appreciated. The most popular setups appear to be 10F, 15R and 12F, 15R. Apparently H&R have released a 13mm spacer, so maybe 10F, 13R could be a good setup?

Your going to have to take them off to fit the spacers anyway, and removing wheels is hardly a tough job. Time to harden up and do it mate

Fair call, just being too lazy!

I was actually thinking of purchasing them locally through a tyre & wheel shop and getting them to put them on. I'm very time poor on the weekends after cycling and doing jobs for the missus so that I can get the credit points to go cycling.

F chassis spacers are different to E chassis spacers

I can order some in if you like, don't have any F36 suitable ones in stock

10/15mm or 12/15mm sounds like a good size.
