sti brembos to wrx??

Hello everyone, i have a small problem. I have a 2003 impreza WRX and i found a set of brilliant brembo brakes from an 2003 sti(front-rear discs, calipers, pads etc.) The problem is; i have 17" OZ Alleggerita rims(i know sti's are also 17") actual dimensions are:7,5 x 17 inÁ ET 48 5 x 100mm. Will brembos fit my rims or are they going to be large. I would be realy glad if anyone can help me with this situation as they are nearly 2000 GPB Waiting for good news

Re: sti brembos to wrx??

Hi again, yesterday i went to the subaru dealer and we fitted my front wheel to a 2004 sti. There was a very small touch and we solve the problem by putting 5mm spacer. But i have a question: do you think 5mm is a problem? Do i need longer studs? Another thing is as i have v7 original sti wheels for my winter tyres so i won't need the spacer in winter. So if i have longer studs will it be a problem when i want to put on my sti wheels? By the way those brembos are BIG!!

Up to 5mm I would say you would be ok. If you were going for 10 or even 20mm I would definitely get longer studs. If it was a problem I would hope the Subaru guys would have highlighted it. I used spacers on my old WRX wagon with the standard studs and wasn't a problem.

Re: sti brembos to wrx??

Good morning all, i haven't written on this one after putting the brembos, so i thought i should give some feedback. They are awsome, breaking distance is far too short!! and it doesn't fade even if you make 6 or 7 back to back hard breaking over 150 km/h. That's great, it deserves all that money
