Default SSR Comps, 18X8 clear STi Brembo fronts right?

I just realized that only 18X7.5 and 18X8.5 clear STi's. Will I have problem clearing front brembo's on my WRX with 18X8 ssr comps?

I assume you have swapped the USDM STi front brakes onto your WRX? If so you will need to run the STi spec Comps (18x8.5_ET48) or get spacers and longer studs.

Luke can you tell me what size BBK's will fit under my setup? And what's the reason 7.5 fits and 8 doesn't? I might get the Rotora BBK instead then.
