I'm thinking about putting some wheel spacers on my car (lowered with Eibach's Sportsline Kit) and I've been seeing a lot of discussions regarding 20-25mm spacers (especially 20mm front and 25mm rear), but with 18-20" wheels; as of right now, I'm just gonna stick with my OEMs until I decide to switch to aftermarket wheels. Has anyone had experience with flushing the wheels to the fender for a 17"? I'm not sure if I should do 20mm for all or do 20F/25R. Thanks in advance!

No experience with this but I’m leaning towards 20mm all around, and my Touring isn’t lowered either.

I have stock 7J wheels and Eibach prokit. Front 20mm spacers and rear 25mm. It looks great. Think with sportline you will get some rubbing.

Hmm so you think that 20mm all would be the safest bet?

With 20mm in the rear you will be fine. 20mm in the front will be tight. I will make some pics tomorrow (is late in the evening overhere) and post them.

Hmm, considering its a 0.4" increase from Pro to Sport and the fact that you said that 20mm might be tight in the front, I might even consider 15mm. Yeah please, I'd appreciate a pic!
