My guess is that it won't, b/c the lip of the wheel is a bit on the big side.

Is there any way you can try one on your car Alex? I know you have the Z32 upgrade and have access to that wheel. I would greatly appreciate it before I buy them. Thanks.worst comes to worst I will have to keep my spacers.

I am determined to get these 5ZR wheels.
H&R makes spacers in these sizes;
5mm(.2"), 15mm(.6"), 20mm(.79"), 25mm(.98").
now which size would I need to safely clear these wheels, or stock wheels for that matter using the 30mm Z32 Brake Calipers?

You are one lucky guy...

The 17x7.5" +35 5ZR's will work on the Z32 upgrade. Just tried it on my car today, and it clears the calipers, BARELY... Probably 1mm or 2mm at most. The 26mm calipers would probably work best.

Yeah, but the wheels still moved w/o touching the calipers...

You'd have to get longer wheel studs to safely run spacers more than 4-5 mm. Probably a good idea to get them anway if you're running any kind of spacer.

Wow thanks man! I appreciate it, I assume you have the 30mm setup like myself?
So basically if I pick up the 5mm H&R Wheel Spacers as well I will be safe. cool.
FYI PN# for the spacers are
10646621

Yup, 30mm Z32 calipers. A 5mm spacer would work fine, and it won't be too much for the studs.
