Anyone with 18" Foose Legends willing to get me some measurements?

    As the title says, I'm looking for some measurements to see if these wheels will clear my rear Brembo Brakes. I just finished installing 6th Gen Camaro Brembos on the rear and my Boss 338's won't clear the callipers without spacers. With spacers the tires are into the fender lip. So I am looking at new wheels. I know the ridler 650 will fit but only have 3mm clearance to the caliper. I like the look of the Legends so I am hoping they will work.

    The measurement I am looking for is if you put a straight edge across the wheel mounting face and measure 6.5" from center the distance from the straight edge to the backside of the spokes.

    Update. Since I couldn't get an answer I ordered the Legends, and the 8" fit the back brakes without a spacer. The 9" require a spacer as they are offset 7mm. So they will work.

    i LOVE those wheels......just found out last week FOOSE has them. I only knew of the Ridler's. Can't wait to get that far along on my BIRD. Sadly by the time I get that far along.....they will probably be "classics"...:(

    Thanks. I have the Boss 338's (identical to Ridlers) on the car now, but they don't clear my new brakes.
