Default Megane 225 Brembo's onto T-5R

Picked up a pair of Megane 225 Brembo Calipers, planning to fit then into my T-5R which I've seen a few folk do.

What disks are used to fit them under the standard T-5R 17" Titan rim?

Thanks

Never heard of this upgrade/moodification so I'm intrigued.

I only knew of the usual OEM 302mm upgrade after which, those wanting more would for so the likes of the Porsche big reds or AP kits.

I've been running the megane brembo caliper set up for about the last 4-5 years with 320mm discs but that's with 18" copy pegs.

I think you will struggle to get them behind titans. I had to fit 10mm wheel spacers to get them to clear volans that's why I went for pegs.

Thank for your comments oblark. Yes, things are tight under the Titans. There's no chance 320mm disks will fit with the Brembo calipers. The biggest disc that can be used is 302mm from a P1 V70R. I'm in the process of making brackets just now.

I'll post pics once completed.
