do euro svt wheels fit over brembo brakes?

Right now i've got 18x8 team dynamics white monza wheels i really love the look they, but they rub with aggressive driving.
I was thinking about getting the euro svt wheels and having them powder coated white.

1 Will euro svt wheels take to being powder coated?

2 will euro svt wheels fit over brembo big brake kit? any pics to back up an answer to that?

3 is there another wheel in the same price range as the euro svt that is basically the same look? i really like white wheels on my red car.

thanks

I am looking for some 17's that will fit around them. right now i have 18 td monza wheels but they rub too much. i don't want to use spacers either.

I really like the white 15 spoke look i have now.

What wheels do you owners have now with out spacers?

thanks

I really don't believe anyone on this forum owns the Brembo Big Brake kits. Simply because on public roads no one is going to need all they can offer. They will look amazing I'm sure, but you could pick up slotted/drilled rotors and better pads to get a nice boost in stopping power for a fraction of the cost.

$1400 is a little steep for anyone that isn't racing their Fofo professionally...

i have the same kit installed on my car, they are huge, stop great, look great...however the stock svt wheels do not fit....stock svt wheels are 49mm offset, right now not the only wheels that i have that fit on my car are 18x7 O.Z. Supertorismos (pretty close look to euro wheels) they are a 42mm offset and fit with a 5mm spacer up front to clear the brakes, basicly making them 37mm offset, figured this all out thanks to the tirerack techs.....
as far as 17's go, im still looking for a set that fits, i think that 17x7.5 rota slipstream's with 40mm offest should work with the spacer....but im still varifiying that
finding wheels in 4x108 can be a pain in the ass!

If you were to do that to the front you would have to do a huge kit to the rear as well or the brake balance will be thrown completely for a loop. They don't make a rear kit. Heck the SVT rears would even be too small. Its totally overkill for the road and won't stop you any sooner.

Can you lock up your wheels? If so the brakes are fine. Start looking at better tires at that point.
