Hello everyone. I'm in the market for some new rims. I'm going to buy the Momo X1's (no, I'm not changing my mind). I'm also planning on upgrading my brakes in the near future with Brembo brakes. I was just wondering what rim diameter I should get? Will 17" rims still have enough clearence to house the Brembo brakes, or will I have to go to an 18" rim? I don't want to go to an 18" rim because performance and ride quality is lost. But, I will if the Brembo brakes won't fit in 17" rims. Also, how much offset would be needed? I would like real and honest responses. I don't want flamers with sarcasm. I need to get the rims soon, but I want to get the ones that will properly house the brakes I want. Thank you in advance.

Thanks coOOlcelica. Well, I found the offset for the X1s and it is 38mm. I know that the stock rims are 39mm. It's really close, but I'm not sure how much bigger the Brembo calipers are. Well, I'm still searching, but if any one has more input, I'd appreciate it. Thank you
