Brembo 405mm BBK does not fit stock wheels

Just wanted to clear the rumors that stock wheels will work with 405mm. They don't even come close to fitting.





Look how much larger it is from stock!





There were at least 3 contact points



I did not try with spacer but I think it might requirte 1/2 inch spacer to clear and that is still quastionable.

Those wheels look awesome! And you can never go wrong with HRE wheels.

They are lightweight and very well made. Congrats!

Those brakes rock. They are so strong that you get afraid to step on the brake pedal
