    thats the dimension you must check with wheel supplier

    Ibizacupra,
    Do you happen to know which lightweight wheels will fit as direct replacements [ie no spacers required] to OEM on a 2005 LCR.Is it the case on aftermarket wheels that spigots are always used or would some wheels directly fit without need for these?
    To make it worth changing from OEM i would be wanting to save at least a couple of kilos per wheel

    Consider Compomotive CXR rims and Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 - both fairly light and available in assorted offsets & widths to order

    Thanks for that,
    Follwing a quick look not sure CXRs come in 18"s.
    Are you familiar at all with Pro Race 2s as they come in 18x7.5 and are apparently slightly lighter than 1.2s?

    Does anbody have the depth of a standard ICR brembo caliper? asin distance from front piston to back piston maximum distance( or brembo stickered face to back face)

    As i have been working out clerances on the ICR brembo for wheels and i have a feeling that the porsche calipers i have, are of greater width!

    Thanks in advance!

    Yeah thought that so changed the fronts round last night, same slight rubbing on drivers side caliper.

    Any chance hub / caliper not aligned, wheel bearing ??? Anything

    Humm its just passed MOT, would wheel bearing explain the more rub marks after going on the brakes hard?

    This weekend I discovered that mk4 R32 wheels (OZ Aristo) don't fit over LCR Brembos. Anyone know what size of spacer I'd need to make them clear?

    Can't edit my previous post so replying to myself, lol. Answer is 10mm as a minimum, might just manage 8mm but 10mm gives just a tiny bit more clearance than the stock LCR wheels have.

    Hi to all. Could you measure distance btw center of hub and edge of brake caliper (set of 305 mms with bremboes)? I mean what minimum inner diameter of wheel can be suitable for this setup? Thanks.
