Default 17x9 that fit stoptech bbk?

My 17x8 rota boost fit with spacers.

But I want some 17x9 for track work. I have RPF1's in 17x9 but the barrel diameter is way too tight for the stoptechs. Shame because they are great wheels @ 15.9 lbs.

Stock brakes with good pads work ok, but when I push the pace hard for a time trial they have gone away a time or two. (xp12, fresh slotted rotors, fresh motul rbf). I could conceivably get some brake ducting to help with the stock brakes.

It would be nice to install the Stoptech BBK - less weight, much better calipers, more swept area, more heat sink area (thicker rotors).

Still on the fence of either trading the RPF1's for something that fit, or selling the stoptechs and forgetting about it.

et45. Even with 15mm spacers they will not fit because the internal diameter of the barrel is very small. The barrel necks down severely. Probably helps them with affordable strength and lightness.
