    From memory mine are et35, I dont run any spacers and they fit fine. In theory you will only need a 2mm spacer to give it et35 so just get the smallest ones possible. Double check first though, and if i was you put a soft rag over the caliper when you offer up the wheel. Dont want to be marking them shiney new brembo's, lol.

    good idea about the rag!!

    Maybe if bill reads this he could give me a quote for some spacers and bolts. I was trying to find the picture where you cut the paper to get the measurement.

    anyone know if a 10mm spacer on ET35 18" BBS LM replicas is enough to clear LCR brembos?

    Good thread i got the brembos on my ibiza and 18's but want to change the wheels to 17's so some of this info will come in handy soon :)
     
  13. I've got the brembo GT junior setup on my VW Golf 4motion (same caliper as the Ibiza Cupra R I believe). I have a set of ET32 18x8j BBS RC's and they clear without the need for spacers.

    leon calipers are not the same, but in clearance terms it makes no odds to wheel clearance - for info only

    dude
    50mm caliper clearance is req'd from wheel hub face to back of spoke.
    this is the critical dimension, and wheel designs in this respect make them fit or not, NOT just diameter/width/offset

    as per this well used picture in this thread..
