Trying this again.

Ok so posted a thread about this weeks ago and literally got no response from anyone. Complete . I have 2014 M5 with 275/305 MPSS tires. The car is sitting pretty slammed on KW Has Kit. The car is also tuned and pushing around 700whp. I'm asking if spacers are feasible and also safe? I'm mostly concerned about poking out the rear for a better stance so interested in 10mm spacers as long as they don't rub. Any help will be GREATLY APPRECIATED. Thanks.

Spacers are safe as long as they are installed properly. Make sure to clean the rotors prior to installing them. And make sure you have extended lug nuts. I got mine from burger tunning. As for the size, just measure from the tire to the fender and your set. I'm on stock wheel sizes with 10mm spacers all the way around.

Yes make sure it's clean surface and if using 10mm spacers then extended wheel nuts by 1cm more than standard lug nuts.

I have CCB brakes and rotors. Will this affect them by putting spacers on?

What's your wheel / tire and suspension setup and what size spacer you running?

The spacers will be moving the wheel away from the ccb's and I know there's plenty of room on the front wheel arches,343M's are all the same.
I remember one particular well known poster with a black M5 on a ramp (hate naming out) who has the KW kit and spacers fitted and had to have re-align to keep within limits.
You probably know this but removing wheels with care is needed with cars with ccb's as edge of wheel can catch disc and chip it.

No, I don't think so.
