Does Brembo make a brake kit that I can use with 18" wheels.... I am mainly aiming for looks... i need the rotors snd calipers and stuff... i know they make one for the front, but do they make one that fits front and back under 18"

also, if they do, what am i supposed to do if i need to put my stocks back on?

The 14" front Gran Turismo kit should fit with most 18" wheels. You should check for caliper clearance to be sure. I cant tell what wheels your running in the picure. If you post on here what type of wheels you are running I'm sure some of the guys can give you feed back.

As far as rear goes. There is a rear kit available that will fit with 18" wheels. Caliper clearance is less of an issue in the rear but you should still check to make sure. Some guys will run different offsets in the rear to get a deeper lip which leaves less clearance.

The stock ///M wheels do fit over the brake kits (front and rear). You will need to run a 15mm spacer in the front with the stock wheels. The good thing is that it looks really sweet with the spacer. It brings the stock wheels just to the edge of the fender well.

If you want to get a dimension sheet emailed or faxed to you to check wheel fitment you can call Progressive Image. (310) 470-4910. They do alot of Brembo Kits and they can get you the Wheel measurement sheet. Im pretty sure they can hook up a good deal too.

14in brembos wont fit ur wheels. The 12.6in brembo kit have problems clearing even 19in HM2s. so i'm for certain that the 14in kit wont clear the 18in HM2s.

According to brembo, the 14in kit needs at least a 18in wheel. and the 12.6 at least a 17in wheel. however, the caliper clearance is another issue. you can run 12.6 kit on HM2 is you use a 5-7mm spacer.

sounds like too much of a hassle.... how much do spacers go for anyway? And how much is the complete set of brakes rotors pads and everything together?

Call Eric at SPP for pricin on the spacers. i really have no idea how much they go for.

If your just talking about replacement rotors and pads, each rotor should be near 100+ and pads proly about 80-90 a set. these are average prices.

But if ur talking about the entire big brake kit, then its at least 1300-4000.
