TSW Wheel Question

I just picked up a 2011 SS convertible and want to put some new wheels on it and am running into a probelm. I like the TSW Cadwell and my wife want ths TSW Nardo's (not sure who will win this one?). When I do the wheel configurator's from different sites they say they will fit but when I talk to the TSW dealer they say there is an issue with the back wheels and the factory will not guarantee a fit (something about the Brembo brakes). Does anyone own an SS with either of these wheels on them and did you have any fitment issues?

I am a dealer for TSW wheels and neither the Nardo or the Cadwell wheels will properly fit the Camaro SS. They won't clear the rear calipers. You will need to use spacers and that point they will stick out past the fenders.

You can check out the Donington, Nurburgring or Interlagos wheels. These will fit perfectly, no spacers required.

TSW also makes a wheel line called Huntington which is specifically made for modern muscle cars. These wheels will also fit perfectly, no spacers required. Below is a picture of the 20" Huntington Bolsa.
