Oh yeah. Your somebody was right. The front wheels are about one inch deeper to clear the calipers. Yeah, I know, the back has calipers too, go figure.

I'm Back. Not sure your new mags are offset, if they are not factory equipment.

rear and front rims

Rims are different from front and back. I didn't know this so once I try putting back rim on front and front rim on back. In my situation, my rear rims in front rubb on tie-rods. So in my situation, it wasn't brake calipers. Good luck finding front rims. I know some GTA owners get all front rims put on car so they can rotate tires without dismounting and mounting, especially for those of us who have directional tires, this can be a costly proceedure (rotating tires from front to back without rotating rims).
