Default 15" volk te37's...clearance on big brakes

I didn't see much when searching this subject. I am a n3wb though but not a total moron. (I do have a masters in motorsport engineering )

Anyways, I was looking at the various brake kits and wanted to know if they'd fit under my volks?

Oh, I did use the flyin miata template and they did clear, but it's close. Which is iffy when using a cardboard template.

I have the trackspeed kit and I can probably check in early September next time Jeffman and I go to the track together.

I've got the 11 3/4" wilwood dynapro kit for Mini Coopers on my car, much larger than the 11" Dynalite kits. Fits very close but clears with Kosei K1's and the old style 6uls. New style 6uls have more room still. Sorry, no Volks around to try. You might see if Volks has a wheel backspace cutout available to compare to either Kosei or 6ul. If it's as big or bigger you should have no problem.

Not enough information. What's the width and offset of said Volks?
