Default Will Stock 18" 2007 SE Wheels Clear The Wilwood Calipers?

I know this has been asked before, but I can't find the thread...

I am going to need some winter tires soon, and I'm thinking it may be cheaper to buy a set of 18"s mounted to some aftermarked wheels, but I need to make sure that they will clear my Wilwood front calipers. I figure if I use TireRack's vehicle search engine, whatever 18" wheels they pull up should be the same measurements as the stock wheels...unless anyone has any other suggestions?

I ran these Hankook EVO's the last couple of winters, and I got REALLLY lucky...they SUCK in even the smallest amount of snow. I'm expecting that we're going to get hit hard this winter, so I need to start tire shopping...

I'm pretty sure they will, I tried them on the oem 17" wheels and they cleared them.

The OEM 17" wheels cleared the Wilwoods? If so, I can get a 17" wheel/snow tire package from Tire Rack for less than buying 4 19" snow tires alone. Do you know what the 17" OEM wheel measurements are as far as backspacing goes?
