Default Caliper clearance... 05 Sti 18x7.5" temporary wheels.

The tires on my BBS wheels are toast and a buddy of mine is letting me borrow a set of wheels for a while till i get new tires only problem is they dont clear the front calipers.

The wheels are off of a newer ford fusion and are 18x7.5 et44

Can anyone tell me what size spacers i would need to run to clear the front brakes. I would greatly appreciate it!

It is highly unlikely that anyone on a Subaru forum has put ford fusion wheels on their car.

Noone can tell you.

Man, if only there was some way to figure it out with maybe 5 or 10 minutes worth of effort. Like putting washers or some other sort of spacer on the wheel studs until the wheels didn't hit the brakes, then measuring said washers/spacers to figure out how thick they were.

Unfortunately, there isn't any method like that.
