From what I’ve read on pelican, a lot of repro Fuchs don’t fit due to different inner dimensions than real Fuchs. The cast wheels require more material for the same strength and interfere with the larger calipers.


I just sold a pair of Euromeisters in the classifieds because they didn't fit on the inside. The caliper rubbed and would have required a spacer. This was on the rear with Boxster non-S calipers. I have Boxster calipers on both front and rear. I thought about a small spacer but with a narrow body the offset would have brought the tire even further out towards the fender and would have never fit.

If I understand your situation correctly, it seems that the interference was at the inner section of ID that ramps down to a smaller ID. The caliper must have initially fit into the ID.

Is this correct?

I'm asking, because I want to make my Euromeister work in my flared fenders.

Thanks

Oh yeah, the calipers fit with a lot of room within the wheel diameter. The problem for me was the face of the caliper rubbed on the inside of the wheel, therefore required a spacer to push the wheel off the hub/rotor.

Thanks. I'm using flares, so will need a spacer anyway, so I think the Euros should be OK with Boxster brakes.

I bought the wheels and I am going to be using stock -6 calipers. Hoping I do not have to massage the rear fenders. According to the Maxilite Wheel site 16x7 with 23mm offset are good to go. I'll know in a couple of days.

For anyone running 15" wheels you can go with Wilwood Calipers... Also there are a couple tricks to installing these, I can inform anyone interested.


I'm interested in the tricks to install.
Which Wilwoods? Piston sizes? What calipers are you running on the rear? Master cylinder diameter?
Thanks,
Andys



What are you going to do for emergency brake?

Not sure who this question is directed to, but my e-brake is a Wilwood mechanical spot.

For you guys running the boxster calipers, are these track cars? Sixes? I was always told the stock calipers were plenty good provided they were in good working order with quality shoes. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/confused24.gif)

Stock is great on a four. Sixes are heavier. V8's, flared cars, ect, usually want more brake. It's not always a - have to. Sometimes its a - want to.

I’m running them front and back with Rich’s kits. My car is street and some Auto cross. Yes it’s overkill, but they look good, brake awesome, cheap and plentiful, but are much newer than the other brakes. I had problems with my rebuilt 914-6 rear calipers. It was easier to update to a 911 emergency brake.

I've seen Rich's kits referred to several times, but I'm having trouble finding them. Is there a website he runs, or does someone else market them for him?

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/agree.gif) stock brakes with good pads is plenty for general and aggressive street use. I will be doing vented front rotors at minimum and if ambition allows, add some alloy calipers. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
