Default Can someone on the Westside with Brembos and 5X100s help me out?

I'm getting a set of Brembos, and need to see if a set of rims I have will fit. Can someone around here let me test fit a rim on their car? Thanks.

Not really. Spoke design/thickness has a lot to do with it.

spoken like you actually know something

I'm 90% sure that if it clears a STOP-TECH BBK it'll clear Brembos

i believe the brembos require more clearance than the stoptechs. best to check it on brembos b/c someone w/ brembos is probably interested in them right?

Yeah, me! I stumbled across a great deal on front Brembos, so now I have to figure out whether I should:

(a) Get 3mm or 5 mm spacers so I can keep using the GC-06Ds (18 X 7.5, +48 offset) that I just had powdercoated silver;

(b) Use the SS6s (if they fit without spacers), or

(c) Buy some Rota Boosts and sell both sets of 18s.

I'm leaning toward (a) and getting the spacers.

Yes, the STi Brembos. So it's safe to say that if the wheels will clear STi Brembos, then they will clear Stoptech 332x32s?

I think the answers are there.

Doesn't really help me since I have no idea whether the SS6s clear StopTechs either.

If its not on the list, then it has not been attempted or they will confirm it does not fit

Take a look at this.

follow the instructions here.

I selected the link for the 332mm x 32mm oversize disc since it is larger than the OE factory Brembo brake discs which are 326mm x 30mm with a 46mm inner hat offset. Hat thickness is 6.7mm.
