yes they fit.

wheels don't get "close to the brake caliper" unless the face of the wheel changes. offset or width do not change the face design. wheels with a higher offset will sit further inboard, while a lower offset pushes a wheel outboard. how far is determined by a combination of the offset and width.

haha after i made this i realized i was looking at the wrong portion of the chart, in my mind i was looking at the backspace and not the offset
