365/345 Brembo BBK // 18" E88 // Caliper Fitment Issues

Picked up a Brembo BBK a while back with the intention of running 18Ē e88ís on it.

Remember seeing slicer say on his FS posts that the 365 kit would clear, which they are but the calipers are getting very minimal clearance with the barrel.

To the point where iím occasionally getting little rockís stuck between the caliper and scratching up the barrel slightly.

Is there anything i can do to fix this besides running a different bbk kit or running 19Ēs.

Since the wheels need to be specifically the E88s I don't think there's anything else u can do. Brembo GT doesn't provide the best clearance for 18's.

Brembo needs to update their brake caliper designs. The retaining pins and pad tabs that stick out make the caliper much taller than it needs to be. Other brands have newer designs which allow for better clearance.

iíve been driving the car a few days now and it hasnít happened since but itís bound to happen again. There is no doubt that it fits of course, itís just that the clearance is super minimal with a 18Ē e88ís.
