Default Will spacers work for 2nd gen front brakes with 1st gen TT wheels?

So I've read like 40+ threads on the topic of upgrading to 2nd gen TT brakes but have yet to find something definitive when it comes to to them clearing1st Gen TT wheels with spacers. I see people have taken a grinder to the calipers to get them to fit, but can't find anything about using spacers. I've seen that the max spacer you can use is 5mm on the stock studs, would this be enough for them to clear?

The grinding on the calipers is done on the outside edge because it hits the barrel of the wheel. Spacers wont solve that problem.

Yea I dug for like another hour and actually found some decent pictures of the grind and realized that is what it was after I posted. Guess I'll just have to get some 18s and do them all at the same time. Doesn't help that there isn't anything really definitive as far as what fits offset wise with our cars and 9.5" wheels. Especially since I plan on doing coil overs too.
