Wheel Fitment Question

My r53 JCW has r56 JCW brakes. I'm looking to go to a 17 OEM wheel. At the moment I have OZ superleggera 18's but I've bent the hell out of them. Any suggestions for OEM wheels that will fit?

I was considering these http://www.outmotoring.com/cross-spo...nthracite.html

You will have to get ones that fit the R56JCW. I don't know if the hub diameter changed as well as the studs or not, will have to wait for someone else with more experience.

The hub diameter should be fine. The only issue I think I might have is that the wheel face might hit the brake caliper.

I have seen a website that shows all the oem wheels and has info about them. I can't find it on my phone but any wheel that fits the R56JCW will fit over the brakes.

Correct although I don't know where I can find oem wheel fitment. As I believe the r90's were r53 wheels. I guess I could order them and get spacers if needed.
