Default Wheel fitment

Offset confuses the crap out of me. So here goes. Will 17x8 +35 wheels clear front Brembos? I believe they will. Will it wreck havoc on my bearings? Or is is not so bad considering all of these hella flush cars out here.

Still doesn't answer the question. I know the +42-+47mm rule for the 8" rims I'm thinking about but I have Brembos so I need to clear them.

Let us know which wheel you are talking about, the size and offset doesn't always determine caliper clearance. Due to the low offset it is likely the wheel will clear however there are more factors then that (lip size, spoke shape, etc..).
