JCW 4 Pot Brembo Clearance

Will a 17x7 ET 42 wheel clear the JCW 4 Pot Brembo calipers? I know the R112 wheels clear and they are 17x7 ET 48.

Thanks!

It depends on the shape of the spokes, but generally the lower the offset the more room there will be.

Not only the shape of the spoke, biggest attribution to fitment is back pad thickness

That might be for a floating caliper like the base single piston calipers, but the JCW calipers are fixed.

Is there any possibility this set of BBS 16" Wheels will clear JCW brakes?? 7Jx16H2 just bought these a while ago and then found some jcw brakes on the cheap

I dont think those will clear on any 16" on the four pots from what we tested and seen. has to be 17" or higher. Let us know if you test them.
