Hi Adrian!

I have the BBS RS Wheels 16x9 in the rear and 16x7 in front and only use a 5 mm spacer up front.
The rears are marginal as is. With 2 big guy in the rear seats it will just scrape the sidewalls.
Tires are 225-45-16 all arround

I have read a little about rear wheel spacers, 15mm seems to be mentioned quite a lot.

Has anyone used them with 16 inch factory bbs alloys ?
What was the results in terms of road holding and wheel clearance ?
