    I've been searching everywhere to see if the wheels I am about to have made will fit up front. I have a Baer 6p big brake kit. I am also purposely trying to stick with 17 inch wheels.

    The wheel would be a Weld S-71 17x9.5. I would like to run a stock size 275/40/17 up front
    The offset would be 24.13mm or 6.2 backspace.
    High pad to clear the calipers.

    I am pretty sure they will fit but I wanted to double check with someone with more knowledge on here. Thanks!

    They clear 14" rotors, so I would think you're correct

    Yeah I know the 17 weld s-71 can clear the 14inch rotor, if barely. Im worried about the width and offset interfering/rubbing in the front. Id go 17x9 with a better offset it I could still do the high pad up front to clear the calipers. Hoping someone on here has a good example of a 9.5 up front.
