My application is a MkII Scirocco w/ 9.4" front brakes, wheels will be 13" x 8".
Did you spec. "RWD" centers or "FWD" centers? The FWD centers allow more caliper clearance AFA how far the caliper extends vertically past the wheel mounting surface...unnerstand? Bill at Diamond said I had maybe 1/2" to play with on the RWD centers (and, FWIW, on spare hub assemblies laying around, the calipers extended beyond the wheel mount surface ~3/8" on an A1 9.4" brake hub and ~7/16" on an A2 9.4" brake hub).
The FWD centers add 2# and $10/wheel...so you know my preference.
