Fellow builders,
Do 15” wheels fit or is there any modifications (like grind down brake caliper) that have to be done...thanks!

I will be using Turbo hubs/brake setup

Bruce had to shave his calipers to run 15" Rota wheels, but I have clearance without modifications using 15" König wheels. Neither of us use 2008+ FE5 components as far as I know though.

I have a SC 07, but just put on the 6UL 15x8 wheels in front. They have about 1/2 inch of clearance. And they are under 12lbs. The 16s that i took off were even closer to the housing.

I have 15” wheels and they fit great...but you are saying you’re going to use the turbo Brembos? Those almost certainly won’t fit under any type of 15” wheel.

Do you know the offset of the 15x8 are you running the same in the rear ? I have the 6ul’s on the front of my mr2 they are really nice especially for the price !
