Anyone have the dimensions for the 6-piston Brembo calipers?

So I am about to purchase a set of new aftermarket wheels, but I want to make sure they have space for the Brembo 6-piston calipers. I have looked, but I am unable to find the dimensions for the calipers. Seeing as I have not yet purchased the brakes myself, I am hoping someone may have those numbers available, specifically how think the calipers are between the brake rotor and the wheel. The wheels I am getting have 40mm (4cm) of space and I want to make certain that is enough room.

I have the 1LE 6-piston Brembos and measured ~2.3 inches (~60 mm) from rotor surface to outer caliper edge, so 40 mm will definitely not be enough.

thank you for that measurement. It is very helpful. By chance, would you be able to measure the thickness of the rotor where the wheel studs are? Because the wheel sits on that surface, I am thinking that the added space will be large enough to fit the calipers if that is included as well.

Here you go. There are two flanges, one between the hat and the rotor (black arrow), plus another one (orange arrow) between that and the wheel mounting surface around the hub, see picture. I actually dug up my digital caliper for these two measurements, my garage cabinets and toolboxes are still not delivered, but that's another story, oh well.

This means there is a ~60-15.4-13.4 = ~31 mm gap between the caliper's edge and the wheel's mounting surface, I guess that's what your concern was...?

yes, exactly! the 40mm of spacing on the wheel, plus the 29ish mm of spacing from the hat should give me enough space for the 60mm thick 6-piston Brembo brakes, I hope. Unfortunately it's all speculation and assumption until I actually do it. Thanks again for taking the time to measure.
