Default Gramlights 57DR 15x8 - clearance

Hi all
hoping someone might be able to assist as I'm struggling with finding wheels to clear my Nissan R32 calipers. (On a NB Mazdaspeed)
In short does anyone own a set of Rays Gramlights 57DR in 15x8?
Hoping to get measurements of the rear brake clearance relative to the hub face. Or clearance from Willwood BBK if someone's running those.
We have Enkei NT03 that clears but other wheels I've tried don't. Eg Advan RG.
If only Wheel manufacturers all had templates like the 6UL offer.
Thank you 👍🏻

Our 15x10 6UL will clear. Roll fenders for them. Can you get 245/40/15's in Australia?

thanks Emilio. Yeah I'm close to buying the 6UL 15x8 but thought the 57DR could be an option also, just hoping someone has a set and can help.

225 seems to be the max people run here. I was looking at 215/50 Yokohama A050. The A050 is wider than most.

This is site is great, so much info.

Emilio, is the 6UL wheel template for the 15x9 also the same for the 15x8?
Template clears the brakes 👍🏻
