For RE30 you need 17x7.5 +43 at a minimum to clear them.

You will need to run a 10mm spacer in order for the caliper to fit.

As stated above your going to need a 10mm spacer to make them work. re30 sizes and offsets are basically the same as the ce28, and alot more people have tried ce28's with the spoons so we know what works and what doesn't.

What sucks more is that there are no 10mm hubcentric spacers for the front of the car (S2000 specific). I havent found any, if someone knows of a product, please do tell.

What you would have to do is get either a 5mm/15mm spacer. Not sure if you can use (2x) 5mm spacers - doesnt sound safe.

You can however bore our a rear 10mm spacer to fit the front, but this would ruin the integrity of the spacer IMO.

I am in the same boat as you. Best solution with minimal modifications; find wheels that fit.
