I think there might be contact at full droop when the car is jacked up in the air with the steering wheel at full lock - I haven't tested that condition, but don't care (it's a track car, not a rally car. lol).

Good luck, I'm fairly certain that these will match your application - they have been and are being run by a fair number of track cars in a square setup.

On full lock either way i rub the inside of the rime against the upper control arm. -3 camber up front

How easy is the fitment with these compared to RPF1's on lowered cars? Is anyone running 17x9 up front and 10 in the back?

Got mine mounted and install. No fitment issues what so ever with the ST40 BBK. I have downforce fenders so no fitment issues there either.

At complete full lock they JUST touch the upper control arm. I feel like I need bigger tires now!

Hey
I saw your car up for sale! What are you getting next? haha

Anyways, I'm checking back on the fitment for 17x9 +55 w/ 255 RE71R
13" ride height (hub to fender) for both Front and Rear
Front: Fender rolled, no rubbing w -3.1 camber achieved using the hardrace offset lower ball joint (wider track)
Rear: Bumper tabs bent, w/o bending them tire was rubbing on driver side. Running -2.5 camber.

How about 17x9 +48 with Spoon front fenders, rolled rear 1/4s and lowered a couple inches on coilovers? I know 17x9 +45 RPF1 and Buddyclub SF fit with 255/40 with those mods and rear bumper tab relocated.

Just put 17x10 square setup on my car with 255/40/17 RC1s. No fitment issues with fender or the BBK.

Anyone know if the 949 Racing 6UL 17x9 +55 rim will clear the Stoptech ST40 caliper with 328mm rotor and no spacers required?

I know the description above says only up to 325mm rotor BBK will fit, but I was told it may still fit this particular kit. Anyone have experience. Really hoping this is possible since these are great budget wheels. Prefer not to get the 17x10 version since my car uses front brake ducts and will rub.

Hoping Emilio does another batch of 17x10s - I've been trying to source a set for a month or two and they're all out.

I just got a set of these wheels and I'm not sure what to say about the above quote.
I got a bunch of BBK templates and nothing fits these wheels except the very narrow Wilwood 327x28mm kit.
These wheels have way worse BBK fitment than my previous front wheel (RPF1 in 17x8 +45).
Really hate needing to go with spacers but not sure what else to do now

This is correct I've tested fitted a few different BBKs with the 17x9 +55s here were my results

Stoptechs require 5mm spacers
Brembo GT require 5mm spacers
AP racing requires 9mm spacers

The wilwoods seem to be the only ones that fit. The 17x10s will fit with most BBKs I think but I don't have a set for reference.
