Will Gram Lights 57Xtremes clear BBK

First fill in the usual disclaimers. I have done due diligence, got feedback from several people, etc, etc. Combed the forums. Really I have.

But I have not got the definitive answer. I need actual hands-on feedback. As I don't have the wheels in my grubby mitts yet.

Do you think (preferably know) if Gram Lights 57Xtreme will clear a BBK? Akebono specifically.

Specifics: 18x8.5 offset 33. 2013 G37x sedan.

This is as close as I came:

'Only info I have for brake clearance on that wheel in 18x8.5 +33 offset is clears IS, GS, z33 and z34 skyline r34, silvia, impreza and rx-7 not sure if it will clear Akebono brakes. '

Thanks. You could help me avoid making a very costly mistake, (not my first and certainly not my last, but..dodge it if I can)

Due diligence is going to the source and doing research. Click the link below. Find the specs for the wheels you are considering. Look at the fitment footnotes and note what it says about your specific model (CKV36, if you're not aware is your car).
