4 piston brembos under 15inch wheels

I was test fitting some 4 piston brembos under some 15X8 fuchs on the rear of my 1303. It almost fit! Has anyone ever modified some 4piston calipers to fit under 15inch wheels?

I was wondering the same thing...

It might take 16 inch Fuchs to be able to run the brakes I want

I test fitted some 15" wheels on the 944 turbo (4 pod calipers) I have on my other chassis and that fits.

Which wheels were they? i think i'm going to make a fixture and turn the outside diameter of the calipers until they fit. I still need to make an adapter for the front calipers as i'm running early 944 spindles.

I found 15" Fuchs cleared the front Brembos (with a thin spacer) but fouled on the rears when fitted to 944 steel style arms with the ally bearing cap/caliper mount. I also found that 16" Fuchs also fouled on the rears as it was the shape of the inside of the 'windmill' that hit the caliper. I imagine that a thin spacer might help but by then I'd bought a set of 16" 964 Cup 1s.
