The previous owner of my ZX3 installed Baer Brakes. The car has 17 inch wheels and summer tires. I'll need to install snowtires soon, and while I could get snowtires to fit my current rims, I'm considering the purchase of another set of 17 inch wheels just for the snowtires. (It seems like I could spend hundreds of dollars on mounting and balancing by switching the tires back and forth each season for a few years). Can anyone with the baer 13 inch rotors tell me what I need to look out for to make sure the new wheels will clear the calipers?

I'm looking at Rage Reactors online. They're 17 x 7 and have a 45 mm offset. They look to me like they'd fit, but I'm a little nervous about ordering them and then paying to ship them back if they didn't fit.

I think I've found answers to my questions. Baer has templates available on their website, which can be used to check for clearance issues. http://www.baer.com/technical/templates/

Since my plan was to order online, I wasn't able to check the wheels myself, but the sales specialist checked out the specs and told me the wheels would work. The wheels and tires have been ordered, and I should find out if there are any problems in a few days.
