lol I know that. What I do not know is what offsets work. For example under 35 might work, over 35 might not. Get what I'm saying? So it would help if you mentioned the size/offset of the wheel you know clears.

I know there is at least one forum member running Forgeline 18" ZX3R's and the Brembo 380 BBK but I don't know the wheel specs.

Thank you for posting this OP.

A couple of years ago there were hardly any 18" options available that cleared the Brembo 380mm.

to see what else is available these days...

Possibly the ADVAN RG2s 18x9 +20. I ran my big Brembo kit with clearance height and width wise with plenty to spare.

Clears Brembo, Stoptech, Project Mu and Endless BBKs.

Will the Volk G2 in 18x10 that Turner sells work with 380mm brakes. They do not state anything on their website or list the offset. As they sell them specifically for racing, I would assume so, but you learn never to assume.

confirmed. If you go with rear OEM 18s on both axles, no spacer required. You do need to put the weights on the outer and inner edge.
