Default BBS LMs clear a BBK?

Hi guys, I am on the hunt for BBS LMs but I was told i(n passing) that the fronts may not clear my BBK (Alcon) because of the LIP face.

Anyone know have any insights here? Doesnt sound right to me...

FWIW, I ran 19x8.5 ET17 and cleared my 996 Brembo calipers with plenty of room to spare.

Yea, it was odd for me too.

Specs as i have it, 19X8.5 and +30 offset. I think its good but figured I'd double check with the forum.

I run the spec size LMs (19x8.5 ET32) and they clear my chunky AP Racing CP5555 6-piston calipers. I sent the caliper template from AP to BBS and they were able to confirm the clearance.

You are searching for one of the only wheels I'd rather have on my M3. Good taste.
