I have a set of Eibach 30mm spacers that I may consider selling. Are you sure you want to go 30mm on the front? I have 20mm on the rear of my car now and have tried the 30's on the rear just to see how they look. The 30's will move a 7.5x17 Brabus wheel to the very edge of the tire lip even with the factory one inch wide lip extension. I would think a 30mm front spacer would move the tire past the edge of the fender. I have Brembo caliper covers or I would mount one of my 15" wheels on the front with a 30mm spacer and take a pic so you could see how it looks. With the caliper covers, I need at least a 16" wheel to clear them.

I have some pics in my gallery of both 20mm and 30mm spacers on the rear of my car for reference. I have looked into many brands of wheel spacers and find the Eibach line to offer the best product currently available. Look at their website to get info, but go to "Auto Anything" to get the best prices on Eibach products. Good luck with your mods.

I have 15" Brabus wheels on a 2013 EV and I would like to get the front and rear out to the edge of the fender if possible, right now the fronts are inset as are the rears.... I can't seem to see your gallery...

You only have two posts, so far. I know you need more to post pics, but I do not know if there is minimum to view other's pics.

Which Brabus wheels do you have. The Monoblok VII is the real Brabus wheel and has no raised lip on the outer edge of the wheel. They come in 5.5x15 and 7.5x17 for the US spec cars. The Euro cars have 5.5x16 and 7.5x17 wheels. The Brabus wheels that were a $550.00 option on Passion/Pures were 4.5x15 and 5.5x15 and had the raised lip on the outer edge.

I'm sure the ones I have were just the factory option ones. I can't believe that H&R gets $140 a set for spacers, they are 1/3 of that for every other car...
