Question Question on BBS Fitment with 380 BBK

In my search for a new set of wheels I am considering the classic BBS LM in 19x8.5 front and 19x10 rear. I believe the offset is 32 in the front and 25 in the rear. I have 6 p brembo 380s in the front and 345 in the rear. The tires would be 245/35 and 275/30. I do not want to run spacers so i was hoping to see if the brake kit will clear without issues. I also noticed the BBS RSGT has a 35 offset in front so perhaps that is a better option? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

BBS has a fitment calculator on their site, and let you specify brembo brakes on your car.

I have the same configuration except with CH's that are et35 up front and mine have 15mm clearance from caliper face to back of spokes with no spacers - however - your spokes are not face mounted like mine.

You want at least 3mm clearance at the bare minimum, so the difference with LM offset yields that but I think given the depth of the lip you would eat up at least that 15mm difference and be cutting it too close to not need a spacer but I could be wrong...

We have the same brakes, so I've paid attention to this and recall reading several threads on this forum indicating that they would fit under those spec LMs, FWIW.
