Contour SVT 16" wheels clear SVT focus brakes?

As the title asks, does anybody know if the 16" five spoke Contour SVT wheels will clear Focus SVT brakes?

I searched through the pics here for a while, saw no SVT's with the contour wheels, did see small front brakes with them.

There is a set for sale locally, but I would rather not drive all the way out there just to find out they won't clear my brakes. I have Mustang calipers on SVT rotors, but let's assume they have the exact same fitment needs. I know my brakes clear the cougar 16" six spokes, but by the bare minimum. I screwed up and sold those wheels.

Yes, they will clear stock FSVT brakes without any issues. I am running FSVT front brakes on the Cougar and they clear stock 16" wheels as well as my CSVT 5-spokes without any issues.

Out of curiosity, why did you swap to Mustang calipers?

I made a big brake kit similar to the old BATinc one.

I had the base model brakes with the 2000-2004 knuckles, the price of buying a SVT kit with new knuckles was more than I wanted to spend.

The mustang calipers are 1/2 the weight of SVT calipers and twin piston. Cheaper, lighter, works better, and it was a fun little project.
