Default Subaru 4pots and Rota Sub-Zeros

I just want to know if the 18inch Rota Sub-Zeros will clear the Subaru 4pot setup. I know that they will not clear the StopTechs because I tried it on my car already. If you do have a StopTech kit that clears the specified wheel, please show me a picture and what you did to get the wheels to clear.

The 17 inch sub zeros do, with lots of room to spare. I'm sure the 18s would fit with NO problem.

I know the 18s do NOT fit because I have tried already and the spokes hit the lower portion of the caliper. It seems like the length of the spokes is what is causing the problem.

Im confused
Are you saying that the 4-pot subaru calipers will NOT fit behind the 18" sub zero's???
That would suck cause I have the wheels and was going to install the 4-pot red subaru calipers too.
Anyone else try or have this wheel brake combo??

Checked out the link from gonz.
Its confirmed that the 18" sub zero's do not fit the stoptech calipers.
What I would like to know is if the Subaru 4-pot brakes (22B caliper) will fit behind the 18" sub zero's.
Thanks,
Don

I checked the 18's over the Subaru 4pots yesterday morning and I have found that the wheels just barely clear the calipers. When I mean clear I mean like by just the thickness of like a penny.
