What wheels are you guys using to clear Big Brakes?

I'm having a horrible time finding anything, especially wheels that look stock.

Can you post what wheels you got, offsets etc. Pictures if you got em.

I Have EAP wheels and they hit the caliper.

To be clear though, the issue is not the wheel diameter but the clearance from caliper "face" to the back of the wheel spokes.

Thought about that until I realized it seemed closer to 8mm based on brembo's measurements.

Do you know anyone running 5mm on the 49 offset OEM wheels?

I drive a bit on the mentally insane, and can't afford rub. It seems more and more that I should ditch the BBK. It's really not that necessary after all.

you should get a set of rota boost in 17x7 with a 45mm offset

that should clear the brakes and you wouldnt rub.
