What wheels fit over 17z calipers without a spacer? Anyone know of a caliper template, I can only find one for 18z's.

My 17x8 ET45 BBS LM didn't fit the 17z caliper. Sold the kit off. Needed at least an 8mm I've still got the 330mm rotors and brake lines if anyone is interested.

I have s similiar problem, looking for wheels that clears the big TTRS calipers and discs... 370mm...

So far I have found that these wheels fit(
OZ Ultraleggera 18x8 ET45
Audi rotors 19" TTRS wheels
VWR 18x8"

I have testfitted some BBS ch-r 19x8.5" ET48 with 3mm spacers. I found BBS ch reps in 19x8.5" ET45 that I will testfit tomorrow!

VMR have some modells that also should work!

I'm not sure if either of you ever got this sorted, but if you have templates for either brake systems, I'll be more than happy to check and confirm fitment against the wheels in our line-up.

I know it's not the same but it may help.
My RSE05s fit over my Brembo GT kit with room to spare (4 piston 330x28) for reference I run 10mm spacers with denvers for the winter.

Looking for wheels that fit over them mostly. My current wheels should clear without a spacer but i would like options.

Also any reccomendation on pads and first hand accoints on pedal feel.

Those calipers are way better than stock. First off those are four piston compared to ours which i believe are 2 pistons. They will perform way better than stock even if they are smaller. Size is not everything. There is also a caliper template on there.

We have a single floating piston front caliper. I am interested in what wheel options there are for 17z brakes as they are the ones I have.

I know for a fact they didn't fit under my OEM Classix or Detroits, I ended up getting the Rotas I currently have and they cleared with plenty of room (17x9.5 et30). It really comes down to the spoke design of the wheel, flatter faces tend to be an issue.

I ran Brembo pads and the Merc rotors and like it. I didn't like the pedal travel though, upgrading to a R32 or even better the TTRS master cylinder solves that problem. It's fine and definitely stops, but you have to go pretty deep into the pedal to dig into the brakes.

Sorry to ask and resurrect the thread. Does anyone know if the OEM huffs will fit the 17z brembo kit without spacer or if I need a spacer how thick does it have to be?

Thank you
