Was that stock suspension? Looks pretty good. What size tire were you running? Probably the only wheel that I would prefer in 8.5 over 9.5 lol

Front wheels are specified as 188.5, which I presume is +43.
Rears are 18x9.5, probably +45.

I also presume that TRD calipers are the same as PP Brembos — if someone can confirm that I'll update the top post and topic title to reflect that.


Those look like the TRD 6 piston BBK, not the OEM PP brembos.

Do you know if the dimensions are different between those two models?

They are completely different calipers, so yes.

Oh ok, they do look kind of the same though. I'll update the top post.

I have Gramlights 57c6 in 17x9 40mm and wondering if the Subaru BRZ "OEM' Brembos that come with newer MY/trims would clear my wheel.

Anyone have access to brembo kit to check the clearance for me?

TRD 6 piston vs. PP Brembo, which is better? I guess 6>4, so TRD caliper is better? There should be a similar thread for the TRD calipers. Also, if driving on the street, can you really feel the difference made by larger, and perhaps a bit smoother, brakes? I am thinking about upgrading my stock (small) calipers to the PP calipers. Not sure whether it is worthwhile to do it. Any suggestions?


Finally, one maybe super dumb question. Is there ANY chance that some 16 inch wheels can fit over the PP calipers? Thanks.

Other than the actual piston sizes, I believe the PP Brembos have the same specs as the WRX STi Brembos. If so, then no wheels smaller than 17" will fit. If I remember correctly from my Impreza days, the only 16" wheel that MIGHT fit is a rally wheel from Braid, though I'm not sure how they pulled it off.

Photos of how much (miles!) of clearance Titan 7 T-S5s in 17x9 +37 have:

I think these are the most killer looking track-worthy wheels that fit Performance Package Brembos with miles of clearance!

I've also confirmed they weight 15.8 lbs.
