Default Fitting Advan RG-D2 with NB Sport brakes?

While having seemingly lots of tread, the tires on my TiG MSM are beyond *** (can't even recall the brand - we'll say 'not well known' - from PO and likely pretty old), and while it's kinda fun spinning everywhere, it's not what I'm looking for.
Searched until my eyes about bleed and then some at this point for a light, decent wheel with a machined lip, as I can't quite get into the all-black on a TiG (although they're gorgeous on red cars). Was ready to buy the 6UL w/machined lip from FM, but no longer available,e and they and 949 said it's a one-off/no more to come. Have gone through a small bunch of wheels I'd found, either being discontinued or in some cases, unknown manufacturer I don't want to roll the dice with, while even 15x8 Beryllium 6ULs(which don't thrill me on a TiG, but would rock w/machined lip) are OOS seemingly until towards the end of the year.

Came up with the Advan Racing RG-D2, which I can get in 15x8 (will be mounting Conti ECI 205s..), apparently weigh around 12.5#, although Yokohama (parent of Advan) and most vendors have no clue... in either a 35 or 28 offset.
Trying to get Advan/Yokohama to answer 'will these clear NB factory sport brakes?' and they want be to magically come up diagrams for them, as apparently sport brakes weren't a thing in Japan?

So - can anyone confirm if either the 28 or 35 offsets in 15x8 will clear sport brakes, or does anyone have a magical source of diagrams for the sport brakes I can send their way?
Kind of big $ on rims to have them not fit or need spacers, especially when unsure can return 'em if they don't clear.

Checked out the mellens service manuals, no go there RE: dimensioned drawings.
