Mesh style wheel fitment on Brembo?

I've been searching for some fitment information for mesh style wheels on OEM brembos (series yellow, performance pack, etc). Does anyone have info about the caliper clearance for wheels of this style?

For my specific taste I'm looking at a square setup 18x9.5, offset ranging from +22 to +35 depending on what fits (dropped on coilovers), but if I'm understanding correctly the inner design of the mesh face is what will determine caliper clearance and not offset?

Examples:
Thanks for the help!

for multipiece wheels, the only thing that matters is the center disk design.

In the case of VS-XX, R or T disk:

If you want square then you go the same specs all around. Some 2-piece wheels allow offset in millimeter increments so you can go "square" all around with staggered look.

Some of these wheels shouldn't even be on your list... BBS LM doesn't even have the proper bolt pattern to fit this platform.

Sorry I meant to describe the offset as a range that I'm interested in, I would use the same offset on all 4 corners to go square.

Thanks for the Work info, that helps a bit.

As for the BBS LM, I just showed them as an example of the wheel design. I'm more concerned about that style of wheel clearing the calipers (which Work seems to provide nice details on). Still curious about ESR and Aodhan.

Clearing the caliper also depends on how deep the barrel is in a 3 piece wheel, I know in Work Meisters at least they have different sizes-- like how "sunken in" the face is if that makes sense. Once you're past +40 offset I would think you should be fine in that regard, +22 or something is pretty aggressive so I would think that takes it out of the equation especially if you're on coils.

You could PM @systemmotorsports on Instagram if you have an IG though, they hooked me up with Mag Blue Rays wheels and they sell all kinds of custom setup Work wheels and other 3pc too. A friend of mine got staggered Meisters in 18x9.5 and 18x11 from them and they helped him with fitments and all that. (Flush/poke/camber and all that)

EDIT: +38mm is roughly "flush" in 18x9.5 if you're lowered

sorry, ESR and Aodhan are just 1 piece cast wheels, the clearance for big brakes is unknown.

Why don't you contact the manufacturer yourself?

Thanks for everyones help, I managed to get something cleared without spacers. Big thanks to Aodhan for giving enough information to make this work.
