Default New Here need advice for clearing brembos

Hi guys

Like I said I'm new here so my bad if this has been brought up

Looking at changing the front brakes on my blobeye wrx to the brembos, and know that wheel fitment as well as arch rubbing is an issue.

would a fitment of 18x8.5 ET35 clear the brembos? what kind of tyre sizes would I be looking at? would I need to get the arches rolled?

any advice greatly appreciated

All depends on the design of the wheel. It's more the spokes of the wheel that hit the brembo calipers. Some have loads of room like the XXR 527s and the Rota grid drifts need a 5mm spacer. Find a wheel you like first then look to see if it will clear brembos. Some manufacturers are quite helpful too. Bola were able to tell me straight off which wheels would fit and what offset would work. Certainly worth contacting them. Same for Rota in the UK, they were very helpful.
