Thanks for the prompt response. I have a spare VMR DB3 19x8.5 ET40. Could I send it to you to verify?

I'm reading conflicting info on whether the wheels will clear the caliper without a spacer. Is anyone actually running these wheels with the Brembos? I can't see how it would work if I need a spacer (without excessive negative camber).

Thanks.

How much for wilwoods?

I bought them used from another member about two years ago. He said they were low mileage, which I am sure they were - very clean. Shortly after I installed them, I started getting wheel shake while braking at speed. Bought new rotors and Carbotech pads. Bedded the pads and every thing was perfect for a few months. Then, the driver side caliper started to bind and it caused uneven wear on an almost new pad (outer driver side). I completely disassembled the calipers, cleaned up the bores (which had some light scoring) polished the pistons, and reassembled with new seals, new pads and resurfaced rotors. Perfect. It took about 6 months for some light shaking to come back. Fast forward to last week; very spirited driving in the hills, lots of hard braking. I thought it may help with the shaking - as I drive like an old lady most of the time. Calipers started dragging again- SHAT!. Disassembled, and found more scoring on the cylinders. Cleaned everything up, new seals and resurfaced the pads (80 grit) and rotors. The shaking is worse. I could probably fix it with new rotors and pads, but I'm done with them. Too much grit gets in between the cylinders and the bores because there are no seals.

I've said for years Wilwoods are crap because they don't have dust seals...

I've seem them fail tons of times on a track on track cars. No way, shape, form will they work on a street car.

Kind of amazing, right? 10 years old now and still going strong. On another note, the Baer Pro+ brake kit isn't any heavier than the stock 04 brakes. Food for thought...

Just a 7mm up front to get 265s with -3.0 camber. Will be more like 15mm for a 285.

Hows your front fitment with the 8mm spacer. I have 19" 40et and im nervous about the wheel and fender clearances.

CCWs FTW!

CCWs can be ordered anyway you want them I believe, but since these wheels pre-date the BBK I needed at least 12 mm on the front and 5mm on the backs. I believe these wheels had close to stock offsets because I ended up getting adapters to push them out a little farther on all four corners.

Much to my surprise, no rubbing (after some finessing) with a 10mm spacer on 19X8.5 ET40 VB3s with 245s.

All parts for the front 6 piston Brembos are on their way. Rotors are at machine shop.

They have very similar (almost same) clearances width-wise.

Has anyone tried the V710s yet with the V2 kit?

they have two different offsets for the 18x8.5s. 35mm and 45mm. if they were going over normal brakes, id go with the 45, but chances are that is going to need a huge spacer to clear.

hypothetically, let's say the 45mm need a 15mm spacer to clear safely. that would bring the offset down to 30mm. could i accomplish the same thing with the 35mm wheels and 5mm spacer?

i want to run the smallest spacer possible (or none at all preferably, but I don't see that happening).

this whole thing has me very confused. of course it doesn't help that i don't have the calipers or wheels in hand.....

V710's have more spoke clearance than vb3's, with a +35 offset (8.5 wide) up front you should clear without spacer and +45 (9.5 wide) out back as well.

I think the Aussie guy with the black one has Simmons now. He is a member on here. Street Commodores forum no longer works, so I can't check to see if he has them. Maybe Itsme4g63 will know.
