    Vr6 brake disc /calipers replacements

    Hi.
    I've 17 ' bbs on car ,but not happy with how far out beyond the wheel arches they are with original vr6 brake set up - needs 23mm spacer so could clear spaces .

    Want them flush with arches if possible .

    So question is pls - what would be recommended as replacement set up to achieve this .

    Cheers 👍

    New wheels.....

    If they're protruding from the arch but you need 23mm spacers just to clear standard brakes, you have the wrong offset wheels. 17" wheels with 205/40 tyres require an offset of around ET35. What's the offset of the wheels you have on now?
