    Hi, I am about to fit the Tuning Art coilover kit to my E36 Touring. There are lots of posts on this in regards to wheel spacers. I have MV1 Alloys, front 8jx18 ET47 with 225x40x18 tyres. Rear 8.5jx18 ET50 with 255x35x18 tyres. What size spacers do I need for the front to clear the springs?

    Thanks anyone

    It's hard to say (unless anyone actually has the same wheels/tyre sizes). If you can go without the car for a day it's best to fit the coilovers, see how much they rub etc. You can space the wheels out with washers to see what size you'll need (DON'T drive it like this though!). Then order said size.

    Saying that, I'd think 15mm would do the job with the et of your wheels..
