New wheels+Wilwood brakes=fit???

Yeah so I just sold my full set of American Racing Rebel set, the fronts (I'm almost sure of) are 18X9. I have a full set of FR500's with the fronts of 18X9. What measurement should I be looking at to ensure the wheels will miss the calipers. The clearence is already close as fuck with the Rebels and I don't want to run into problems when I get the fronts...

Style: FR500 Finish: Black
Size: 18x9
Centercap Size: Large (2-1/2")
Back Spacing: 5.9" (151mm)
Offset: +24mm (0.9")
Bolt Pattern: 5x4.5" (5x114.3mm)
Fitment: 94-04 V6, GT, Bullitt, Mach 1, and Cobra

Style: Rebels
Size --- Boltpattern --- Offset --- Color --- Hub Bore --- Partnumber

18x9 --- 5x4.75 -------- 25 --- Chrome -----72.6 --- AR6998963
This might help for those that know what they are looking at...

I'm pretty sure it'll fit. I believe the Cobra R brakes needed 24mm offset. in the end you can always sport a small spacer.

if they rub on the calipers, just whip out the grinder and shave the calipers a little bit

This how my car is setup. Previous owner had aftermarket wheels put on with the Cobra R brembo calipers/rotors. The wheel just barely hit the caliper, so he had a very thin spacer installed. Works perfectly.
