Heritage wheels over Brembo calipers (w/o skates)?

I was thinking about making this a poll, but we're not talking opinion here, although the facts are a little sketchy, there should be ONLY one correct answer.

So here's the question, will 18" Heritage wheels fit over the Brembo calipers (without roller skates) on an SS?

The wheels I'm talking about can be seen here:

http://www.pa.msu.edu/~nila/tire.htm

scroll about halfway down the page, I couldn't figure out how to save without the "recommendations"

I've searched the forums and can't find a definitive answer, find things like "should fit" "I believe that" "won't fit over roller skates" and so on.

Has anyone actually done this? A picture is worth a million thanks, and I'll throw in a fine cigar too!

Also, if anyone near the Detroit-Chicago corridor has the 18's and wouldn't mind letting me try one on please let me know. I'll bring cold drinks!

There has got to be someone in Michigan that has LS wheels that you could try and put on your car for a test fit.

It wont fit without an adapter. I found a few on EBAY, but an SS with 18"s? May I ask why?

Here's the reason why he's asking

Summary: Looking at driving the SS over the winter, and he can get a deal on the Heritage wheels.
