Style 68 Wheels + 335 Brakes

So I have a few Questions:

A would Style 68 wheels fit on the 128, I have seen a yes but wanted to make certain. 245 tires on the rear, offsets are high

B Do you know if Style 68 wheels fit the 335i brakes?

Well that is extremely promising news. Thanks

How much clearance do you have for the brakes? Would you have a picture maybe?

the 335 Rotors are apparently .5'' bigger

I have a staggered set of style 68's that I use for track/autoX events
Front: 17x7.5ET41
Rear: 17x8.5ET50
255/40R17 Federal RS-RR tires all around. No rubbing with stock suspension.

The stock 135i brembos are pretty damn close to the barrel of the wheel, but they're pretty chunky calipers. The 335i rotors are bigger like you say, but I think the caliper is a little smaller.

If you can get a measurement from the center of the wheel/hub to the outer edge of the 335 caliper, I can try to get you the same measurement to see if they'll fit.

About 7.5'' from center of rotor to caliper

thanks very much hoping to buy these tomorrow
