Question try to fit ST380 BBK under 18 Sport Edition A7?

I have a set of 18 Sport Edition A7 winter wheel, and want to get a set of ST BBK. I used Wheel Fitment Template to check and 380 will not fit. My brain is telling me it might fit by using about 30mm spacer. The touching point is show in the pic below. One corner close to the spoke. Any input is welcomed~ thank you.

30mm is a huge spacer. I would suggest against it. From the pic, I don't know if it would clear even if you used the spacer. Are these your main set of wheels?

If it's not your main set of wheels then you could always try the kit knowing that it will work with your normal wheels and then hope it will work with the winter ones and sell the winter ones if they don't fit. Another option would be to get a 355 BBK instead if you have to use these winter wheels.

I'm thinking about the same thing. If these cheap wheel will not work, I might just give it away (only cost $400 lol). If I got another set of 18 wheels like te37sl for track use, is it OK to use it also during the winter? Considering all these chemicals used to melt snow on the road.

I'm planning on buy a set of 37SL for my track only. Using 19 ZCP right now and feels bumpy on the track due to thinner rubber.

winter package
18x8 Sport Edition A7 235/40R18 Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

18x9 Sport Edition A7 255/40R18 Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D

They usually keep the stock parts. When u selling you car, you can still part out and get a majority part of your money back. I knew it was a lot of money.
