18x10 25P with a 10mm spacer?

I am trying to get a AP brake setup to work on the front of my E92 M3.I am running a 18x10 TR wheel @ 25P and I need a 10mm spacer for the caliper to clear the spokes.I running 275/35 18's on the front.Will these work with a total of 15P?.Here is a picture of the caliper that I am trying to make work.

That really widens the front track a lot. You should really consider getting a custom wheel produced. A forged wheel with no lip and a deep drop center should clear that caliper no problem at et25. You really need a 15mm spacer to get a TR wheel to clear that? I see you have a spacer there. Could you post a photo of the TR wheel bolted up with that spacer in place to show how much of an issue you're having. It might just be something inherent in the spoke angle of that particular wheel that is causing that problem.

This is becoming more of an issue than I want it to be.The other issue that I almost forgot is checking to see if my stock 19's will work with this setup.A Arc 8 18x10 25p required a 10mm spacer to clear the brake caliper.I am not sure if the TR wheel has the same clearance so more test fitting will be required.If I had to have a custom wheel built I will just go to a different brake setup which might be the smarter thing to do.

Gearhead999s,
After see this post, you must be total recover from your last visit in hospital. God bless you.

First of all, I am very very green in this and you are very experience in this business. Sometime ago I read a thread written by Rldzhao.

There is a M3 GT4 parts (BBS alloy rim 9.5x18 and 10x18).
Will it be.. after using this rims, you can still sale it with much less depreciation to others because of GT4 parts.
You can enjoy to take some picture of your car with GT4 setup.
Again I am a very stupid person.
