Default Rota Fighter Test Fitment

Hi All,
Does anyone have the above wheels in 17x9et50 17x8et48, or there abouts. I want to test fit one over my 4 pot calipers as OEM 17" with a 20mm spacer doesnt clear the caliper and i dont want to buy these wheels if they still dont clear.
I am around Oxford so if anyone is local enough to possibly help me out with a quick test fit that would be amazing!

Thanks

John

Thanks for the offer bud, will see if I can.
in the mean time, could you measure the thickness of the spoke for me from inside out?
Weird ask but an OEM 17 wheel with 20mm spacer is same offset as this on front so the only extra clearance I'm going to get is the spoke thickness and shape of the spoke.

Thanks!

Can't you find a template online for these calipers so Tango can print it and see if it fits his wheel?

If anyone can print it and check that would be great. Just need to print it as actual size not fit to page. It's A4 size but i was told to keep the printing settings to "actual size" not "to fit"

ok, now moving onto tyre sizes...
What tyre sizes should i run with these wheels. I've been given a range from the internet but its always good to ask people who are already running 8j and 9j wheels.

Thanks
