Motegi 17x7" wheels: will these fit?

I have a 2019 JCW 3 dr HT & have been looking for some new wheels. Fitment over the big Brembos seems to be an issue, somewhat limiting the range of choices.

I found these Motegi Traklites on CarID, but wanted some feedback. These seem to be a decent light-weight choice, and the price is very nice.

I'm wondering 1) if these will fit my JCW and 2) what the quality of Motegi wheels is.. Any input is much appreciated!

Here are the wheels; I'd get 17x7", 45 offset.

Edit: the MR140s are also 17'ish lbs and come in the same size

I dont think.

You need at least a 17x7.5. I went with 17x8 to be safe

Thanks Vinnie. Did you have to run spacers or anything? I'm pretty new & unsure of what's needed when it comes to finding wheels that fit, period, let alone dealing with big brakes too.

At least now I know I can look at wider wheels, which is no problem. Appreciate the info

Glad to help!

So I run 5mm all the way around. I needed to space my rear because of my coilovers. I did the front at 5mm to equal everything out. I just bought 20mm for the rear so I will be going wider soon.

I got the Team Dynamics wheels and they are 17x8 45 offset and as you can see, there is a lot of room!
