Are you guys going to be testing more wheels? I'd personally like to see some Enkei wheels tested, preferably 18x9.5 in any of the wheels they make for our cars.

Yes, the calipers you see are the OEM PP calipers that we purchased from our local Subaru dealer. The tie bar and bolts were also purchased from the dealer.

Otherwise, we've added the DBA rotors we sell on our Subispeed side for STI application as well as STI application pads to complete the kit. OE lines can be used on these calipers, so any SS line that is offered for the twins should work as well.

Any aftermarket SS line kit currently available should work.

So the pad shape for the front is FMSI D1001 / D1016 / D1050. What is the FMSI for the rear?

Probably 961.

That doesn't sound right; those numbers would result in only 55% of the piston area of the stock front calipers and a very different bias.

Did you take off the boots and measure the piston where it sits in the bore, or just the face of it? Pistons look like this usually

Any chance you'll try the te37v sl 17x9 +36 / 17x9.5 +40 for clearance? Really interested in picking up a set from you guys. Thanks!

Do you have the part numbers needed for the pp upgrade? Highly interested in doing the swap and calling up a local subaru dealer to get pricing

Well... you can put the RPF1s 17x9 +35 on the no fly list. It took 8mm worth of spacers to get this clearance (and poke). Learn from my mistake.

Hello!

Man, the combination of the PP Brembos plus this bolt pattern make it so hard to find good wheels that fit without spacers... I've been trying to find the right wheels for awhile and I've basically narrowed my search down but may have to go back to the drawing board if this won't work. Would this fit at all?

TE37 Saga 17x7.5 +44

Thanks for your time, hope to hear back from you soon!

HAWK CERAMICS for your Performance Brembos

These are the HAWK CERAMICS that fit the Performance Brembos on my 2017 Yellow BRZ
Enkei RaiJins 18X8.5/9.5 +45
245/35 18 Michelein PSS
I LOVE these pads, very little dust, Great stopping power for the street. Rotors smooth as glass.
Had Hawk Ceramics on my 2013 BRZ Limited for 52,000 miles and they were half way worn.
Those are 2011 STI center caps, had polycarbonate spacer rings made in Hungry for $5. shop here wanted
$180. The lugs are from FT-86 SpeedFactory.....the frosting on the cake!
