15mm Spacers on my Rears *PICS* 745Li

Was a nice day so I put on the H&R 15mm Spacers on the rears.
Pretty straight forward, some pics below.

Last 2 pics are right side before installed, I forgot to take before pics of left side. Overall I could have most likely gotten away with 20mm spacers but these will do fine.

20mm would be the biggest I could go, if any bigger rubbing would occur.
Will get better pics.

Althought those wheels are sweet, have you considered putting the fattest lip possible on the rears?

I agree with Gamite, what would it rub on if any better? Looks like a lot of fender gap, is there something else to rub on?

Pics didnt come out right I didnt even post a actual shot of the after, the last 2 picture above are before i added the spacers so u can see a huge gap. 20 mm are biggest I can go in the rears from my research done. The ride is lowered and if i got over 20mm it will hit the fenders on big bounces meaning ruining my $650 tire in the rear.
If anything i'll put the 15mm in the fronts and go with 20mm in the rears.
Where can I get lock nuts for the longer bolts though?

and Dado 540 I cracked my front right rim last season on the roads up here, when you start adding lips the bends are bound to happen. Plus I like these OEM wheels and look clean on my ride.
