Offset difference between M5 and M6 on the rears is 11mm. I've read members putting 12mm and look good, no rubbing issues. Have even read one post with 15mm spacers without rubbing. I vote for 12mm

GL,

GL,
Would the wheel spacer recommendation of 12mm apply to the rear factory staggered 124s 535xi as well as the 530 discussed above? Or should I be going with 15mm for rear only? Thanks.

I had 12mm spacers on my 124s (they looked good) but sold them to Vegastrashed when I got the M166s. Wrong decision because I bought new 12mm spacers again when I got rid of my H&R coilovers and switched to lowering springs.
