Question STi brake clearance with 15" rims?

I'm sure this has been asked before, so I apologize for being too lazy to search. (I'm at work and trying to minimize my "play" time). Anyway, I have some 15x7" Raceline RL7s with a +50mm offset, and those are intended to be my auto-x/open track rims.

Does anyone know if they'll clear the STi 4 pot brakes? I vaguely recall reading here that yes, the STi brakes will clear 15" rims, but I wanted to be sure before I go about upgrading things.

Thanks,
Pat Olsen

I have always understood the answer to this question to be "No", but email Mike Shields, he sells both, he should know.

Halfway on the front page DMS-USA said:

"And yes, the 15x7's have extra clearance for bigger brakes. I've used them with 11.75" Coleman rotors and Wilwood 4 pot Superlite calipers."

The STi brakes are on the Group N cars, right? The Group N cars use 15" gravel wheels (Raceline, Compomotive, Revolution, OZ, whatever...) so they must fit. The difference in brake clearance between the typical street alloy and a racing wheel is enormous.
