G'day,

Just grab some 16 inch FG stock rims for powerskid tryes when powercruise time comes. Only problem is after measuring and asking around, the brake caliper is just to big to fit them on my ride now. Question is what would be the best way to get them on there, spacers ect. Should I just forget it and try selling them and look for 17s.


Cheers.

easy way to tell, is first what rear brakes you have?? being bf xr8 it should have the pbr premium brakes?, which are the ventilated 330mm rotors, if so.. no 16" rims wont fit...

Yeah guys, just tried to chuck them on with no luck...bugger. The calipers are hitting the rim from sticking out on the side a bit (pbr's) hmm I bloody wish these would fit. (all the threads come through, so diameter isnt a prob) Twisted the misses arm to get these, after just spending a small fortune on bushes and coilovers lol. I guess im $hit out of luck...thanks for the advice.
