20mm Rear Wheel Spacers?

So I purchased H&R wheel spacers for my 2019 M550i, 15mm front, 20mm rear. I also purchased longer lug bolts for all 4 wheels to replace the factory bolts.

The front spacers I received are DA style that require longer lug bolts. The 20mm spacers for the rear, however, are DRA style that bolt to the wheel hub with supplied H&R bolts, and use my existing BMW factory bolts to attach the wheel to spacer.

For those of you running 20mm spacers...do you have DRA style spacers that bolt directly to the wheel hub? If so, it seems I do not need the longer (50mm) lug bolts and wheel locks I purchased for my rear wheels. Thanks...

Hmm, what I've been getting from H&R are DR Styles.
Can you post the part numbers?

Ok, so mystery solved. The DRA style wheel spacers H&R sent were the wrong spacers. They’ve since corrected their mistake and sent the proper 20mm DR type spacers.

Any picture after the installation? I'm also thinking to get spacer + spring for my m550i on 20" stock wheels.
