2014 R59 with R112 Rims, Wilwood and Brakes Questions

Hello everyone!
I'm looking to upgrade my brakes to Wilwood 4-piston front and 1-piston rear.

Front:
https://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/Br...oper+S+(4+Lug)
Rear:
https://www.wilwood.com/BrakeKits/Br...oper+S+(4+Lug)

My wheels are Mini Cooper JCW 17" R112 Challenge Cross Spoke and from what I understand fit the JCW 4-piston BBK but not the GP2 6-piston BBK (without a 15mm spacer). Can I assume that the 4 piston Wilwood BBK will also clear the R112 without a spacer? I have yet to see that combination but it seems like all 4-piston calipers are about the same size.


My rear wheel.

Second question:
  • My current rear brake has 1 piston,
  • the rear brake I posted in the link above has 1 piston
  • and even the GP2 kit appears to share the same 1-piston rear caliper as the JCW kit.
Is there any advantage to using a 2-piston rear caliper or would it only have negative effects on the master cylinder?

In case you're curious I'm planning to powder coat my rims for a matte black look. I originally wanted to shop for rims but the longer I had the R112s the more I ended up enjoying them.
