Need help with wheel spacers

Hello guys I am new member and got my 2015 435i 2 weeks ago, it is alpine white with red interior and with the M-Sport package.

I already ordered the black kidney grills and my next move will be to install some wheel spacers on it. Car comes with the 18" 400M wheels and I am still undecided on doing 10mm Front / 15mm Rear or 12mm Front / 18mm Rear.

I have seen some pics of cars with 10/15 but none with 12/18, do you guys think 12/18 is too aggresive? I would like to know what you guys think and if you have any pics of the 12/18 I will really appreciate it.

Try measuring your gap

I believe normal consensus is 10/15, however, you may have room/prefer the 12/18. Everyone's suspensions geometry is a bit unique, that being said, "flush" for one car may not be the same for everyone.

~ for the coupe ... i would suggest a 12 front & 15 rear to get things better aligned/balanced look (& without being excessive) and pushing the wheels closer to the fender.
