Also, those have more room then 17z also. 17z needs 12.5mm minimum spacer and its like a sheet of paper away.

Any possibility a 5mm spacer would do the job with stock Detriots? Looks like a good bit of space between the wheel and the caliper. Just curious. I am running two sets of wheels, the Detriots in the winter and neuspeed rse 12 in the summer which are 18x8 +45 I believe. Any info would be greatly appreciated. I was hoping that I might not need any spacer on the neuspeed rims as I am almost flush now. Cheers

based on those pics, I don't think 5mm is enough.

Damit . I'm all over the place with trying to find a BBK for the car. I between the st40, the ttrs and wildwood. I would love the ttrs but I can't space the rse12 any further as I will rub. Aghhh. You had the st40 right? How was fitment there? Cheers

it seems like the willwoods would be the smallest, to allow for easiest clearance.

I was asking about the Detriots. I use those in the winter and the neuspeed in the summer. Good to know the neuspeed will clear with no issue. I was hoping that a 5 mm spacer might work. I thought I saw someone running ttrs with the Serrons and a5 mm spacer? Thanks fo your help!
