    I'd be inclined to go for 10mm to be on the safe side. There's plenty of room on the front arches before it'll scrub.

    Try "extremewheels" on here (forum vendor) I got some spacers and bolts off him ages ago. Mmmm, I'm not sure if you can get 10mm hubcentrics actually, which means all the wieght of the car will be on the bolts, not the hubs. This is not good imo.

    12mm ones here (the same as extremewheels sells) http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/BMW-E36-E46-HU...item43a4fc72c6

    I got away with a 3mm spacer just (could literally fit a fag paper between the tyre/spring) but this was on 205 tyres.
