17x9.5's that work with Brembo's or other BBK's?

I see only one wheel, the APEX EC-7R 17x9.5 +40 listed as a fit.
I would prefer a different look and the price is pretty steep! I was hoping to spend less.
My 2022 BRZ needs BBK's and wheels. I want to fit 245's on it for track work. I'd prefer 9.5" rims because I'd prefer to have the tires stretched a bit, if anything, and it leaves me with the option of running 255's down the road.
It will have coilovers. Wheel shims are fine (I have ARP studs).

I'm pulling my hair out trying to find 17" options in a light, wide wheel that fits over BBK's.

You'll need to watch the 2nd gen fit thread. The clearances are different from 1st gen and it seems like some 9" have trouble fitting. You'll also have more problems due to the compression under cornering loads

Thanks so much! Sorta new here and I've had trouble finding the right place to find the info I need. I've been searching under wheels/tires... and Tracking / Autocross / HPDE / Drifting.

Found out that the official specs for SSR GTX01 explicitly call out Subaru Brembos (see rightmost column and the legend in the bottom right)

I can confirm that the 2019 TRD front Brembos do not clear on the USDM TRD 18x7 & 18x7.5 optional wheels (Matte black). Just test fitted it today on my 2014 FR-S.

Does anyone know how much of a spacer do I need for the base 17x7.0" stock wheel to clear the Brembos?
