    Will a 14 x 7 +8 B type RS Watanabe wheel clear 96 na8 brake calipers?

    I am looking to purchase a set of rs watanabe wheels in 14 x 7 +8 b type and i was wondering if anybody knows if the wheels will clear the brake calipers without paying them to shave the rear of the spokes? Thanks.

    Nic may know (@kawaiiroadster on IG, ihatecars on here). I believe he has these wheels but on 1.6 brakes.

    Reached out to kawaiiroadster and i have confirmed with him that the 14 x 7 +8 type b wats will clear 1.8 na brake calipers. So for those that wanted to order a set in those specs should be fine. I was originally going to put an order in, but decided to just save my money and wait till the next sale comes about. Thanks for the help guys!
