Default RPF1 Type RC to Brembo clearance question…

Hey guys (and gals),

Just interested if anyone has any info on if the 18x9.5 +45 Enkei RPF1 RCs clear the factory STi Brembos.

I’ve looked around a bit and haven’t found much, so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
CRY

if the 18x9.5 and 17x9.5 have the same spoke design, there is no chance of the +45 clearing. 17x9.5 +38 don't clear without a 5mm spacer up front.

I don't think the two piece RCs will have the same spoke clearances as the standard RPF1.

I haven't seen any 9.5" RCs on an STi before, I think that size was originally intended for the R34 GT-R. Past that, I have little info to go on.

Thanks for the info though.

-Cory.

Because of the design of the RC's (meant to be a big lip wheel) you will have serious clearance issues up front. You will need as much as a 15mm-25mm spacer in front to clear from the best of my knowledge.

for 350z and EVO front brembos clearance with a 9" wide RC they have to run a +18 offset
