Default STi gold Brembo's fit on WRX? & Advan RC2 ?

Will these brake calipers fit on WRX rotors? Or do I need to get upgraded rotors as well? If so where do I get those?

Also, they should fit under my Advan RC2 right? 17x8.5 +45mm.

thanks

No. The appropriate rotors for the Brembo fronts are 326x30mm and the Brembo rears are 316x20mm. You can source these rotors through DBA(IIRC they make them for Subaru oem.) The fronts will bolt right up with the appropriate rotors. The rears are a huge project.

I dont want to contradict ellis, but I know the 16" RCs have clearance issues with the Subaru STi 4pots. I would really research this one. Its the spoke shape of the RCs that is the problem. 18s I believe would be no prob.

I've set up a Brembo 326mm x 30mm rotor on a MY99 WRX upright with the Brembo Caliper. No problem. Wheels clearance is an issue though. The rotor has a shorter offset and the caliper is wider.
The rears are under investigation.

sorry, misread the post... I was thinking he was wondering if the calipers would fit under the rims

that's what I get for posting after autocrossing all day.

almost won Smod though finished 2nd by 33 thousandths and was probably in the top 5 times for the day.
