The new F01/02 has different offsets than out cars and would require spacers to work with our setups. I remember looking at the Style 312's for my car and came to the conclusion I'd need almost 25mm spacers to accomplish a factory look, and 32mm to get it a bit more flush like I wanted!

The brake dust can be removed with the right product and tools. I HIGHLY SUGGEST getting TRIX (from the makers of Iron Cut) and a good stiff bristled detaling brush and to take the wheels off and clean them. I did this with the wheels on my 760 and it removed about 99% of the baked on dust. There are a few spots that have really crusted on dust that a second time should remove!
