Hey on a ss the front and rear calipers require different spacing of the rims...the offset to clear the calipers as the rears are larger.....Thus when i installed my new wheels the rear wheels are wider and have a larger amount of backspacing.....20mmm front vs 30mm rear to clear the brakes........
SO I know your a v-6 I hope you have no problem with say scratches to the calipers.....I doubt it as you have been driving it. Just a little known fact that hey the rims in the rear are wider and have a different backspacing for a reason....My fronts will not fit the rear without rubbing my calipers or maybe not even turning...........And hopefully its different on a v-6 as your calipers may be the same size..or have enough stock backspacing to clear.
