2012 Wheel Spacers

Hey all. This is my first post here, so I'm sorry if this information is elsewhere, i am just a bit overwhelmed by the number of threads.

I have a 2012 3 hatchback. Im looking at getting wheel spacers, but wanted to see what other people have chosen before i commit.

Im looking at 15-20mm spacers on the back, and 5-10 on the front. Im worried about how far the suspension travels and hitting the inside of the wheel well.

Any input/information is appreciated

Thanks!

Well adding a spacer won't help your suspension travel. Are you lowered, have aftermarket wheels, springs/coils?

Completely stock right now. Actually just bought it a couple of weeks ago.

Im more just worried about moving the wheels out, and it becoming easier to hit the inside of wheel well as I go over bumps or whatever.
