Will this setup fit on the front of the M?

I'm running 245/40/18x9 ET42 on the front right now. Tires are BFG Rivals which are pretty wide. Stock suspension. No issues with rubbing. I am trying to fit camber washers on but the tire rubs on the strut. So I would need spacers.

Assuming 5mm spacers clear the strut, my setup will essentially be ET37. Will I rub on the fender?

What about 12mm spacers? ET30? (I doubt this would fit but you never know).

Camber would be maxed out to whatever I can obtain with the 2 washers and stock suspension. Right now camber is maxed out at ~-1.1* each side.

245/40/18 + x9 ET37 is only 4mm more aggressive than our recommended set up of 245/40/18 + x8.5 ET35. That being said, considering you've maxed camber, I don't foresee any issues. It may be close with the BFG Rivals

12mm could work, but only if you're able to modify the alignment specs a bit more.
Here's a picture of the VMR V810 18x9.5 ET25 with 265/35/18. Though, he's running quite a bit more camber than your setup.

Thanks! I got it to fit with almost no rubbing. Camber is at -2.6* with the BFG Rival 245/40/18x9 ET37 (ET42 with 5mm spacers). I have about 1.5mm clearance between the strut and the sidewall.



In the air, the only rubbing is on the passenger's side with the wheel at full lock to the right. It slightly rubs part of the underbelly tray. Didn't notice it when the car was lowered, and is fine on the street. First autocross with this setup is next weekend but I think I should be fine with no rubbing!
