When testing AP Racing's only big brake kit available for the E9X chassis, 356mm rotor and 6 pistons, the 17x9" ET30 wheel was extremely close to the drop center of the barrel on the wheel. To be absolutely sure that there would not be any interference issues I would recommend a 5mm front wheel spacer. If this isn't a time constrained situation than you can always try to fit the wheels and see if they clear, if they do not then a 5mm wheel spacer can be ordered.

This is the AP Racing kit I tested on our 17x9" ET30 wheel - AP Racing E9X BBK
