what size wheel spacer will be needed to clear the lower control arm on a 94 525i. the wheel is 18x9 1/2 for the rear and it won't fit due to hitting the lower control arm. thanks for any help that's given
Give or take u prob only need 5mm to 10mm. Try mounting your wheel as properly as u can until it hits then measure the gap between the to top of the wheel to where it sits flush and then convert it to mm and that will give you proper clearance of the wheel.
I finally figured out what the offset on the wheels.... the fronts are 35 and the rears are 46 thats plus on both offsets. Just wondering what size spacers u guys would use on ur own ride. Let me know ur opinion
I bought some one inch for the rear just to see if they would work and they do. Thinking about getting a different onr though want them to sit out just a bit more. And use the ones i got now for the front
