It's not going to fit any better by asking this question in more than one thread.

trying to figure out tire size for my new clubman. I want to fit a spare set of 15x7 et20 euroweaves I have in the garage. I'd like to fit 195/55/15 star specs, think this might work?

17x8 offset +22
17x9 offset +47 (with 20mmm spacer)

Can you please think with me! And what tyres should I run?

Thanks guys... Please mention that I have Brembo's 2piece kit on the car... (I can't figure out if it fits..)

There's no real way for us to tell you if they will clear your brakes. That's entirely dependent on the wheel face design and the contours on the rear side of the face.

8 et22 isn't ideal, but it will work.

I would run 205/40 up front and 215/40 in the rear personally.

wheels are VS-XX from work...

how could I measure that? (BBK) any ideas?! I don't want to buy those wheels and find out they don't fit...

Ask brembo if they have a template for your particular brake kit. Other than that, there's not much else that can guarantee that they will fit unless you find someone else running the same setup over brembo's.

Something like this: http://www.stoptech.com/tech_info/wheel_fitment.shtml

I don't know, gnatster and PGT ran vs-xx's for a while. I'm not sure what brake kits they were running at the time. Might be worth checking their threads. There are a few others with vs-xx's on nam as well, but again I'm not sure if they were ever running brembos at the same time.
