Default wheels need to fix six pot

I hope someone will have some ideas. I have just installed 14" rotors with six piston AP racing brakes. I have a 02 WRX. I have OZ prodrives 18x7.5 right now. They clear the caliper by a 1mm. I want to go with 17" wheels or back to 18" if need be. I would also like to run 235 or 245 tires. Gram lights would be nice. ? what will fit?

I doubt much is going to fit in 17" w/ 14" rotors.

I second that. 14" is a massive rotor.

Way to many vaiables. Thats why brake manufacturers generate a blueprint of the installed setup that can be compared to blueprints of wheels. Because of variations in wheel design spoke shape etc., its a crapshoot without trial and error otherwise.

If its truly a 14" rotor, it will likely not fit under some 18s.
