E60 530i spacer question

I am looking at a set of spacers for the front and rear and I want to run my oem rims with them?

Does anyone know how many millimeters spacers I can put on , the car is running all oem suspension.

Spacers are going to depend on the current offset of the rim and where they sit in the fender, it really depends on alot of different factors, im assuming you want the wheels as flush with fenders as possible for an aggressive look?

50 mm offset? Are you sure?

In any case 15mm are gonna push you pretty close to the fender edge.

Yeah I am sure that they are 50mm offset. So you say 15 mm is a decent size. I am looking to space out the rear with a 18mm and the front with a 15mm.
