I believe that they should clear wthout modification...

It depends. Not all of the S13 7-spokes are the same -- some offer more brake clearance than others.

My wheels clear the 26mm brakes no problem (I think they came off a 91)...but I know the 30mm calipers would be a problem.

Man...I really need to take some measurements the next time I get my wheels off and make a damn template. Soooo many people would buy it.

Not that I know of. Q45 brakes will clear though!

I have stock HICAS SE 93 wheels with Al 30mm brakes and have to run a 1/4" spacer. I had to also get new lug nuts because the stock design didn't allow for proper threading.

Thankx do you know where i can get 1/4" spacer and new lug nuts ? for a good price http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/tongue.gif

Well for the spacer I just went to Pep Boys because I didn't have time to wait for H&R's to be shipped and the lug nuts came from Autozone. I got lugs that were more "cone" shaped (more tapered) so that they would fit deeper into the wheels.

can someone conferm this information ?????

Confirm that he did indeed go out and buy a spacer from Pep Boys and Autozone? <Unsure what to confirm> 6mm spacer should clear the (4mm/2 caliper) 2mm + (4mm/2 Rotor) = 4mm. Everything seems to check out.
