4 stud brake upgrade on A31 Cefiro
« on: November 14, 2015, 07:48:47 PM »
Hey guys, doing a RB25DET conversion on my factory A31 RB25DE Cefiro. And decided that it will be a good idea to upgrade the brakes while im at it(or just upgrade pads and slotted rotors?) just incase it fails cert in the future. Anyone on here done a big brakes conversion on 4 stud hubs? And what the lowest offset wheels that you guys had on your car with big brakes? Currently have 15x9 -12 and not really keen to run spacers... Any help with this will be appreciated! PFA

Its not just the offset you have to worry about but the diameter of the rotors. I have no experience with big brakes on the 4 stud - I thought most people converted to 5 stud mainly for the bigger brakes.
