Spacers for 2007 X5 4.8i Sport Suspension

What will be the best size for the spacers which are not too much but still looks good. My Current DWS tires are 275-45R19 Squared. The Stock OEM tires were 255-55R19.

I was thinking to get 25mm for Rear and 15mm for Front.

15mm for front would be most people's choice. The rear has been debated on either 25mm hub bolt on spacer with OEM bolts or 20mm spacers with extended bolts. Not sure of your offset on the 19's.

I don't think you can go wrong with the 20mm but 25mm seems to be right at the edge.

12mm up front and 25 in the rear.

Just measure the gap between your tire's sidewall and the fender

Skunkd didn't you run 15mm in front or was that too much?

Are Spacers different for 2007 as compare to 2006 model. I thought I read somewhere that spacers are available with 2 different fittings and I am not talking about 20mm VS 25mm.
Hard to find 25mm Spacers ..

The core size of the E53's were 72.5mm as opposed to the E70's 74mm.So yes the Spacers are two different sizes.

25mm are not hard to find. Usually they are hub mounted spacers that reuses the OEM bolts to mount them.
