Fitment experts please chime in. 666M wheels + 12mm spacers

Happy Thanksgiving to your your families and loved ones!!

I just installed 12mm BMS spacers all around and I need some input.

First off, Is my car lowered? I was under the car and saw white lettering I thought it said eibach. I wasn't paying much attention. Could it be eibach V1?

Im thinking 12mm might be too agressive for the rears. Might drop down to 10mm.

Or, I can lower the car on EMD springs and the car might look fire as mentioned on my instagram.

What are your thoughts?

Def looks lowered in the front and at that height guessing your eibach assumption is right. Fitment also looks pretty on point! Is it rubbing anywhere?

I have EMD springs and 18mm front and 15mm rear spacers everything fits fine with zero rub, still inside fenders a tad, 12mm would not be aggressive at all in my opinion

I don't like when the tires sticks out of the Wheel arches so i Went with 10mm rear and 12mm up front. That will also saves your paintwork better. It also better for your steering geometry to not go too wide.

Your car looks fire bro! Do you have side view to see the fitment?

How come they reccomend 12-10mm front to rear with 666m, stock tires and EMD springs?

But, your car is 18-15mm and looks tits.

Did you use the spacers for the rear springs, those hockey puck looking things?

I did my own spacer, the one they supply sits the rear too high and without it it's too low, in all honesty I should have gone with kw HAS springs. I had 15mm front and 12mm rear and then jumped to 18mm to 15mm no difference in handling that I could tell. Rim still sits inside fender. I would say there was a difference in handling with the emd springs though. I little bouncier and softer.
