    Default 17" VXR wheels with Brembo calipers.

    Has anyone used standard Corsa VXR 17" alloys with 'Burg Brembo brakes? What thickness spacers are needed? Do the wheels rub on the arches?

    Any advice appreciated.

    Dont think they,ll fit mate. My E series has brembo's Had two D series vxr's previously to this one. I had a set of 17" vxr alloys with winter tyres. They dont clear the brembo,s as the ends of the caliper fouls on the internal rim of the wheels!!

    I know they don't fit straight on, but wondered if they would clear the calipers with spacers. I've got a set of 17" wheels with track day tyres that I'd like to use if it's possible.

    Would,nt think so, the calipers were fouling on the inner rim, as in the flat bit between the spokes and the inner rim where the tyre fits��
