BBK fitment with rims ?

Before I get flammed I Personally Emailed Wilwood about what offset wheel I would need to fit there kit onto the 99 accord..and they sent me this:
Thank you for the inquiry and use of Wilwood Disc Brakes. Unfortunately we do not offer any brake kits for the 1999 Honda Accord.

However one of our dealers is making a kit for your car using Wilwood components


So my question is will my 17x7.5 +45 offset ROTA SUBZERO rims clear the BBK?

heres my wheel offset calculator readings:
Inner clearance:3MM LESS
Outer Position: RETRACTED by 3MM

Have you seen anybody with subzeros run a BBK setup?

I have templates but too lazy to upload. What you will want to do is measure the space between your stock calipers and the wheel right now and see how much clearance you got. use a ruler or a measuring tape.

You need to contact Revolution Brake LLC (541.488.5638) or FastBrakes (602.323.2110), then ask them to e-mail you their template. Print it out to scale, cut it out, and check to see if you have enough clearance.

You'll see Rotora's sample template on the next-to-last page here: http://www.rotora.com/catalog/Rotora%20APP_08.1.pdf

DV8 is running the same wheels and specs but in 18's and his Rotora kit fits.

I had 18x7.5 Sub zero's and they were 45offset. I guess they made them in 48 also I guess.
