If you are using them without the spacers that are supplied with them they will foul on the brake calliper, this is a consequence of making them fit the homologated track dimension used by the FIA.

A couple of people bolted them straight on without the spacer & they bound up. This is why the MS Rosepetals are supplied with a spacer & 2 sets of nuts, one for each application.

I must point out that Vortz wheels do exactly the same.

Iam starting to wonder now if I upgrade from the S caliper to say minispaes or minisport alloy four pot ones, how much clearance I am going to have? Ight have to speak nice to a friend and try on his before i commit to purchasing.

there is far more room around the mini spares alloy calipers with a rose petal than with a normal cast iron cooper s caliper.

its not an issue at all
