I wasnt and wont compare it to any hill climb driving, i was talking about a road track, so that point is moot. It was also to prove a point, and do you know certain porsches run spacers from the factory? You will probably crap talk that as well! Your probably one of those people that are "omg non original BMW parts RUN!!!" give me a break. I dislike your kind of people cause they have something negative to say about something they have never tried or done on their car themselfs.

Have a good one "mate"

royawood, I would get 20" wheels with lower offset.
You can get H&R bolt-on spacers in 30mm thickness and that would make the wheels quite flush with your fender lip in the rear. A 10-15mm spacer would be good for the front.

Where are you in GA? If you need help, let me know.

Thank you 4.8isX5/1naztyx5/tmv,
And tmv, I'm in Milledgeville, about an hour and half south of ATL.

Currently, I am running 25mm spacers all around, flush in the front (w/o flares) and still an 1"-1.5" away from being flush in the rear (w/o flares).

I would like to install the flares which would increase the distance needed to be flush by 0.5".

So my questions:
What kind of offset does the Style 69 wheels have?
What kind of offset would I need to "only need" 1 inch spacers in the front?
(in other words, what kind of offset would give me 0.5" push outwards)
What kind of offset would I need to be flush without spacers in the front?
(in other words, what kind of offset would give me 1.5" push outwards)

Also, I know a lot of people who run stacked spacers that aren't DRA. I mean I understand that they have civics and miatas that are less than half of the weight of our trucks, but they're stacking 2-3 1-3" spacers on side.

So my question for this is stacking a DRA spacer with a hub/wheel centric spacer?

Stacking spacers or extra long bolts are not a idea. If you need more than 30mm then have custom spacers made. They are not that expensive to have them custom made. Just make sure they are hub-centric.

BMW wheel adapters or wheel spacers

Rear flares will add 1.5" from the top of the arch, not 0.5".

You can use tool like this to get exact offset measurement to your car...
