do you know how more clearance they require over the sti brembos? i have those same wheels in 17x8" with +44 offset, and they clear the sti brembos. they also have the same spec in a +38 offset that will allow more clearance (i'd be concern with this low of an offset though).

as in your picture, rays only lists 18" te37s in a 7.5" width and +48 offset for the 5x100 bolt pattern (which yeah, won't even clear sti brembos)
