Lord_Vader - what do you consider as fast cornering? =)

http://store.bimmerworld.com/bwsport...ers-p1296.aspx
BMW Wheel Spacers - Turner Motorsport

The worn part is around an inch. The spacers are around $200 + shipping + install. Do I need the bolts or stud conversion kit?

Not sure which coilover to buy ... it's around $1K more. How is it better than spacers?

$1365 - Lowering height will vary on vehicles with factory sport suspension.
H&R Street-Perf. Coil-Over

$1153 - Lowering height only is adjustable. Excludes electronic damping/self level- ing.
Bilstein PSS Coil-Over Kit

$1850 - Fully adjustable.
Bilstein PSS10 Coil-Over Kit

You dont *need* the studs, but it makes it a lot easier to put the wheel on should you take them off frequently. Rather then holding the wheel and trying to thread the bolt, you put the wheel on and the studs hold them in place. With spacers you need longer bolts either way, so most just upgrade to the studs out of convience. My 18"s weigh 45lbs each, so i cant imagine trying to lift a 20" in place and holding it while I thread in the lug nuts.

The spacers come in mm widths so just convert the it over to find the one you need. Spacers are cheaper then coilovers so start with those.

From the Turner website:
A wheel spacer helps by moving the wheel away from the caliper, wheel spokes, or suspension that is causing the clearance issue. If your wheels have the wrong offset (too high an offset, causing the wheels to be too far inward) a set of wheel spacers can correct this by pushing the wheel out to the correct offset.

Lord_Vader - the front tires have around 1/2 inch from the outside of the tire to outside part of the fender. The rear tires have 3/4 inch from the outside of the tire to the outside part of the fender.

To prevent the tire from rubbing on the inside, I would have to install 1 inch spacers. This means the front tire will stick out 1/2 inch, and the rear tires will stick out 1/4 inch past the fender. Does this mean that rolling the fender will no effect now? I already rolled my fenders, but since the tires would be past the fender won't they rub on the outside of the tires no matter what now?

That's the price of running 20"s I suppose. The wheels will stick out but more fender rolling should help. As long as your not wearing your tires out so fast it's worth it.

Since the wheels stick out "past" the fender, I don't think rolling the fenders more will help. If I roll more, the paint on the outside car panel may get damaged. Can anyone chime in?

I have to replace my Falken tires every 17k miles and they are supposed to last up to 35k miles. Do you think I can double my mileage on the tires if I got the spacers or coilovers?

If I get coilovers, do they replace the BWM factory sport suspension?

When rolling them it is critical heat is applied to ensure the paint doesnt crack. Hard to say how much you can roll em without the paint cracking through.

Start with spacers. Way cheaper and most likely will solve the issue. The spacers *may* cause the wheel to stick out far enough to rub on the fenders, but thats easy to fix.
