    Hey, my 2g Eclipse has upgraded to Brembo brake kit and the front calipers are pretty big so i have a huge problem finding wheels that fit. anyone else know or has brembo brakes in the front that knows what wheels fit?

    The stock EVO 8 Enkei wheels fit perfectly. They are 17"x8" and an offset of +38mm. So if you look for other wheels with similar specs, they should fit.

    Well I just googled "XXR 527" and on this one website they have them in a size 17x8.25" 5x114.3 and a +35mm offset, which should fit fine. Compared to mine, yours will sit the same distance inside the fender (inset) but will poke out an additional 6.2mm. If you put a fat tire on them, it will definitely poke noticeably, which isn't necessarily bad for some but I know some people don't like tires and wheels that stick out. Additionally, some countries have laws that do not allow wheels/tires to poke outside of the fender and stock dimensions.

    Also you don't *have* to go with the EVO wheels but I'm just saying they are the most common swap which works great with bigger brakes.

    Firstly those are not evo brembos! Do you know exactly what brembos they are from? As these are radial mounted vs the normal ear mounting the evos use. So for this its going to be tricky as the caliper may sit further out in either height for a bigger rotor size or offset tonthe hub.

    Can you give us anymore info on the calipers at all?

    Best bet is to measure the hub to caliper surface to confirm you get the offset right for the new wheels

    You can use any online wheel calculator to get a good idea of offsets your able to use. Start off with the evo enkeis and mess eith the offset but also consider spoke design as not all offer clearance for bigger calipers

    The front of the caliper dont look like a porsche caliper? They are quite square faced so this radial caliper is a weird one for me

    Consider spoke design as the forefront of your search. I would start by verifying you actually have porsche 933TT they usually have a serial number printed on the side or the back. Since it seems the previous owner painted the calipers with ceramic paint this may be hard. Then figure out what wheels came stock with those brakes and work from that measurement.

    With different brembos the biggest thing is finding a spoke design that arches outward from the hub as you may find face clearance to be the hardest hurdle to overcome. XXR seem to fit that description.

    My shelby gt350 rims have 0.25" face clearance in freedom units and plenty of side clearance

    It's all about the shape of the wheel spokes inside the rim/wheel.

    Buy wheels that say they fit EVO's and they should also have enough clearance for Brembo's on a DSM.
