I have the 4 piston kit in all corners.

Stock 18s. No spacers.



My drag setup. Rears are ZR1 reps 17x9.5 56MM offset with a 9MM spacer. 275/40/17, plenty of room for more. Fronts are 18x8 Focal High V custom painted/polished. 40MM offset. Clearance is so close it rubbed a bit of paint off my caliper.

G8 GT Sport Wheels

Front: 245 35 19s ARP Studs, open lugs, 12mm spacer.
Rear: 245 40 19s Arp Studs, open lugs, 5mm spacer.



These two pics were taken before I got the rear studs and longer lugs, I was just doing some fit testing.

18x8.5/45 V710s on my car. I have the proxses V1 front brackets/BMW 740 front rotors and the front hub would push center cap out without a spacer. Added 1/4" spacers and all was good. Rear setup is the itsme4g63/bohnman adapter and I run 18x9.5/45 rim with no spacer.

Okay what about VMR VB3 18x8.5/40et on the front with 8 mm spacers and longer studs and 18x9.5/45et rear read in another thread that this works with the 6/4 calipers.

Both front and rear should clear with those offsets and without the need for spacers up front.

Front VMR VB3s with 40et will not clear without a spacer due to the curvature of the spokes on the backside.

So running a BMW rotor requires running a additional spacer?

Not by itself. Depends what wheels you run. And IIRC it depends what bracket kit you get. I have Bohnman's kit and Camaro SS on the front and C6 Z06 in the rear. 14" and 13.4" respectively.

So with your set up, there isnt a need for spacers? And ctsv calipers say, woul require a spacer on your setup, or once again it would depend on wheels?

On the OEM 18s, no spacer was required. On my drag setup, a 9MM spacer was required only on the rear wheels. It always depends on the wheel. Spoke/barrel design and offset are the biggest factors.

How much did it all cost you? Including pads, hardware kit and paying for labor to bore the rotors? I'm estimating around $1500, give or take, depending on rotors and pads quality. Honestly, how much difference did I make, is it worth the mod just for the brake effect?

Are the spacers for caliper clearance?

According to the ultimate CTS-V conversion thread the VMR 705 will clear front and rear without spacers.

Depends on rotor/pad selection. I bored my rotors myself. $1,500 is about right.

The difference between the 04 brakes was downright ridiculous. The stopping power is amazing. And there's 0 fade after multiple slow-downs from triple digit speeds consecutively.

Yeah. The spokes on the front and rear were hitting the calipers.

Guys, I am DONE with my Wilwood BBK and want to go with the CTS-V 6 piston callipers upfront and 4 piston rear using Bhonman's (itsme4g63) mounting brackets.

I am currently running VMR VB3s in a 19x8.5 ET40 with 245/35/19 Michelin PSS - lowered about 1".

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.

Based on the wheel construction and offsets at that width you shouldn't have issues clearing them.
