This is the adapter I used. You need to go from a female bubble flare to a male inverted flare.

From what I've seen the adapter should be M10 Male Inverted Flare to M10 Female Bubble Flare. I think these will work. https://www.amazon.com/Metric-Bubble.../dp/B006HI5Y1Y

Ah fronts are like 38 or 36 can't remember. But flat face spoke design on dished wheel is always gonna have horrible brake clearance anyway.

I also have a set of 15x7 +15 p1 rep things which clear the brakes with no spacers by miles

No, take it to a machine shop and have them properly bore out the hub on the brake rotor 1 mm.
