Could anyone clarify this statement about winter snow tire packages
"[Option #2]: ~$1.5k from Tiretrack mounted and shipped: RIAL X10-I wheels (19x5 Finish: Black Painted Offset: 43mm, TPMS Kit) and BRIDGESTONE BLIZZAK LM-500 tires. But you'll also need a 10mm spacer in the front and a 15mm spacer in the rear from ECS here, which seem to add ~$150?"
I just got off the phone with TireRack and they assure me that the wheel set--the only one they sell--of Riall wheels with the Blizzaks will be OK as to inner and outer clearance without any spacers. Logically this would seem likely since the Blizzaks are basically front tire width used at the rear of the car where there is space for a much wider tire.
Does anyone have the evidence for this concern about the TireRack set which I now have? I don't want to put them on in December and discover there is trouble. So can anyone speak from personal experience with an i3S about the incorrect offset and need for spacers with the Tirerack package? Thanks very much for your help.
