17 inch wheels that clear the front OEM brakes?

I am looking at 17 inch wheels to put slicks for the track.

99% of the 17 wheels will not clear the front M3 OEM calliper, but some time ago I saw on this forum someone that found a 17 inch wheel that clears fine.
Impossible to find again this tread with the search on the forum.


can you help me to find 17 inch wheels that fit on the front and the rear ?

17" rims that will clear 14" brakes are very very rare, probably have to have it custom made. The problem isn't the offset tho, more inner barrel clearance.

I don't think you'll find decent 17 inch wheels that will work. Note how close the rear toe arm is to an 18 inch wheel, not to mention just clearing the front brakes.
