In Reply to: wheel spacers and tire sizes posted by B. Wheaton on March 01, 2001 at 22:31:06:

I know a guy who has the staggered M 10 spokes and he is running 15mm all around. He has 225/45/17 in the front and 245/40/17 at the rear. He has a little rubbing though in the front. I have M3 lightweight wheels (17x7.5) which I just added 15mm spacers and 235/40/17, I also had all my fenders rolled as there was a little rubbing in the rear. I also still have very minor rubbing in the front at full lock. -1 camber in the front and -2 in the rear.

the 215/40/17 should fit good, i was thinking about doing that in the front as well but i would rather be able to rotate my tires. If you want me too i could dig out his email just let me know.


I finally got my M Contours down to the wheel shop to be refinished and wanted to make sure I bought the correct spacers and tires. The wheels are 17x7.5 up front and 17x8.5 in the rear. The tires I want to go with are Yokohama AVS Sport 215/45/17 up front and 245/40/17 in the rear. I know a couple other folks are running M Contours as well. I'd appreciate some advice on what size spacers I should use for this setup.

Thanks and take care.
