Can't say exactly as I have not test-fitted the ZHP wheel. For either our Wilwood or Alcon kits, we've got the wheel fitment diagrams on our website. Simply print life-size (1:1 in printer settings), glue to a piece of cardboard, cut out the profile, and fit into the wheel. This will tell you exactly if there will be interference and will give you a good idea of how big a spacer (if any) you will need. You really only have to worry about the front, BMW rear rotor offset is so much greater that wheel fitment is almost never a problem.
