Where can I get some spacers?

Hey guys im looking for some spacers. The place where i got my tires installed said that they can order me some alothough it would take a while for them to come and i really dont feel like waiting a long time. My front tires are rubbing when i make turns and this is with 10mm spacers. Any help would be appreciated, thanks. This is for an E36 by the way.

When you get your new spacers, I'm willing to buy your old ones from you.

I talked with the shop and they said that they are willing to drop the tire size from 45 to 40 so now it will be 225/40/18. Sorry i cant sell you the spacers because i never really bought them i kind of just "borrowed them" from the shop seeing as how i never paid for them.

Yea, I think going down on tire profile would help ya better than increasing your spacers' depth. By increasing the spacers' depth you will not rub the inner wheel wel anymore but will rub the inner of the front fenders.

Ok guys i got my new front tires. 225/40/18. There is no rubbing anymore but the gaps in the wheel wells are HUGE. Its alright though im not running the spacers any more and its a good thing too since one of the bolts were completely worn out and the place where the bolt was has to be completely re-threaded now.
