Question 17" rims with lots of brake clearance (GC6)

Anyone have any reccomendations of 17" rims with a spoke profile that would give me lots of brake clearance? I'd like to be able to run as wide of a tire as possible with these, without rubbing. Any suggestions?

It's been mentioned that SSR Comps and Rota SDRs have lots of room. Try searching for the "confirmed stoptech clearance" thread for some ideas too.

Anything that fits the STi Front Brembo's will have more brake clearence than you could possibly need (unless you want to run 355mm rotors, in which case you need 18's)

due to the spoke design, Racing Hart CP-05 and their copy Rota SubZeros have extremely good brake clearance.
