Brembo conversion on classic, will my Speedlines fit over them?

I'm seriously considering replacing the Subaru 4 pots on my classic with the gold Brembo calipers, does anyone know if Speedline Corse wheels fit over the Brembos? Mine are 7x17 with ET48 offset, there doesn't seem to be a great deal of clearance between the wheels and original calipers as it is!

Cheers.

looking at the pic i highly doubt it, the brembos need a pretty big offest to fit.

Offset 45 wheel needed i believe. My prodrive alloys come in et45 and et53 offset and the et45 are the only ones which go over the wheels.
