This is the wheel I have and I was told that I have the same offset at these wheels. If that is the case, then why doesn't my 5mm spacer help to clear my Brembo brakes. I was made to feel like an idiot for asking the offset of my wheels, but clearing I had a hunch things might not add up. So can someone help me figure out my dilemma.

Thanks

Spoke shape has a lot to do with it too and not just raw measurement via offset. You'll need more than 5mm with those premium wheels

Posted in your other thread. Correct; they have the same offset. But that is not the only factor in the equation for clearing brakes and aftermarket spacers. There's also a factor with aftermarket spacers and studs not working with that wheel either. May need to do some more homework. I though I wanted those wheels, but they're a pain so I just got snowflakes and went aftermarket anyways. Sorry about your pretty caliper casualty.
