Measuring the wheel gap is the most basic beginning. The wheel gap is the amount of space between the inner fender lip and the outside edge of your wheel tires or rims. It will help you find the proper thickness. Here is a simple way: use a straight edge such as a metal ruler, place the straight edge on the outermost part of the rims where the wheel comes closest to the fender (preferably the top), then, measure from the outside wheel to the straight edge. This distance is the size BMW iX spacer you will need to achieve the look that flushes or nearly flushes with the fender. Every car’s wheel gap is various, even if they the same exact cars, the wheel gap of the front wheel and the rear wheel is different. Always measure first before buying your BMW iX wheel spacers.
