I am not really technical but I know that when u use wheel spacers there can be some problems.
When I wanted to buy my car there were 4cm spacers in the back and about 2cm in the front, the steering wheel shaked like hell between 80-100km/h when I took a test drive. Not wanted to buy it like that but after the previous owner removed the front wheel spacers and alligned the wheels the problem was solved. Apparently the wheel couldn't turn wright because of the wheel spacers so I would get some good info about this.
Again I'm not a mechanic so maybe someone else knows this better.

if you use the proper (h&r/bmp) hub centric spacers that are T.U.V approved you shouldnt encounter these problems..i have been looking into sapcers as well (more wheel options)....pm windsor318 he is running the bmp ones with no problems...

bimmerpwr, if you just want to bring the rims you have out a bit more, i wouldnt bother. the small spacers (5mm, 10mm) im almost positve dont come hub centric, and you will need longer bolts for it.

Try this place for H&R spacers

I bought my 15mm H&R spacers from these guys.

They are for my E30-M3. I have not noticed any vibrations or
shimy.



They were the lowest price I could find.

Had them in stock...door-to-door.. from California to Toronto in less than 7 days.

Good luck

jim

Wheel spacers move your wheels out closer to the fenders, so no, they wouldn't help your problem, you could add a bit of negative camber but you have to have to buy adj rear control arms and adj front strut mounts which will cost $$$$$$ and you would get increased inner tire wear..
