Default 17" Apex BBK clearance

Sorry, this wasn't all that easy a search term to come up with.

What brake kits do the 17" ARC-8s clear and not clear?

I assume they can clear some good ones, since they're a popular track wheel. And I know I've shoved an 18x9.5et22 over a 380mm Brembo (4 piston) kit. But I'm curious about which popular kits out there don't fit under a 17" ARC-8.

I'm not totally opposed to just being limited to 18s, but I guess it'd be nice to have a 17" option as well.

Default Re: 17" Apex BBK clearance

I know 17" ARC8s clear Stoptech ST40/355mm kits. I think it will clear brembos. You'll need a spacer unless you're running 17x10s. Typically a 3-5mm spacer is all you need for the more aggressive offsets.
