Audi A4 B7 Wheels clear brakes?

Hi Guys,

I found a pretty decent deal on a set of 5 spoke Audi OEM wheels.
I personally don't like the detroits and want to go 17" wheels.

The specs that I know of are
Size: 17" x 7.5"
Bolt pattern: 5 x 112mm
offset: 45mm

Does anyone know of the bore size on these wheels?
And if they would clear our brakes?

I don't know for certain, but I don't see why they wouldn't. At 17" they have the diameter. The spokes should clear because the sliding style calipers on the GTI are really shallow compared to the four+ piston monoblock style fixed calipers that could give people problems.
