Will Brembo Brakes fit behind OEM 19" wheels?

Think these wheels would work with the OEM Brembo Brake Calipers ???

Nope... Tried them and you will need spacers. I added Brembos to my car and for some reason thought the 19" would work. I currently have the 18" optional wheel and needed spacers for those as well. Still searching for the right wheel......

All wheels on the Brembo equipped Cobras work, the Track Pack wheels from FRPP, the SVT wheels from FRPP work, the FR500 style work, Steeda Spyders. The list goes on but that's all I feel like shelling out.

How big of a spacer did you need for the fronts? I have Brembo's on my car, but I would love to run the 19" nickel luster rims.

I am keen to know the answer to this as well.

I simply do not like wheels that show excessive brakes. Its a personal thing.

Hahaha. I hate the Brembo wheels with a passion, but I wanted the brakes more than I hated the wheels, so I was stuck with them

Actually, I take that back. It is the color of the wheels that I really don't like. I think if they were a brighter silver, they would not be so bad. Bad thing is nobody paints wheels around here, so changing the color is not a real option for me.

Is that the smallest spacer ? I am wondering if you could get away with small spacers without studs ... like 1/2" maybe ?

So what is the required backspacing for the wheels?? I have the factory 19" premium wheels, but I can't find what the backspacing is for them, or what the requirement is. I know on FRPP online catalog if you look at the Brembo package, it has links to a few different wheels. The 19" that come on the '11 and GT500 ones, etc.

You really can't be sure they'll work based just on offset or backspacing - it has to do with the backshide shape of the spokes as well.

Wanted to resurrect this thread. I bought these for my brembo car. (I do not like the stock wishbone pattern.)

Anyone know the minimum spacer size and have a brand that has worked well?

Thanks!
