That's impressive! Had to do some fettling on my Alcon 343mm setup to fit 17" Enkies.

I have two sets of Evo 8 17" enkies and one set is slightly smaller than the other on inside caliper clearance area. One wheel was gouged by the caliper so I had 1mm machined off brackets that was enough to sort it. TBH I think there was a small stone chip that got jammed in there. However still too tight for balance weights - only about 2.5mm clearance on worst wheel which is the limit given by Alcon. There isn't enough clearance on inside of disc to move caliper any further as the pads would rub on the bell.

edit: I should perhaps clarify clearance issue is on inside (where OP's picture shows balance weights) rather than the spokes (ie not an ET issue)

No thatís great I have the 8 fq400 Alcons to fit but I have a set of 8 enkeis, 9 enkeis and some 9 fq360 speedlines so just curious.

dont want to offend anyone but this looks a bit small for 356 mm ....

343 mm alcons fit tight into MR BBS, no chance of running weights in the inside edge between the caliper and rim... and 355 GrN brembos are a REALLY tight fit into 17 in..

Hi Mate, Iíve got clearance all the way round, they are 100% 356mm and it does state that they only fit under 18s but under genuine MR wheels and Team Dynamics they do fit. Iím going to be running brakes ducts in for cold air feed aswell and Iíve got the wheel weights on still and thereís plenty of room

Does it not matter what side you put the discs on? The grooves on your discs are rotating towards the calliper in oppose to away

Simple answer yes

What matters is the direction of the inner cooling vanes. The direction shown below encourages air flow from inside to out for optimum cooling. Normally the grooves are cut in opposite direction for best strength/ minimum stress so OPs are correct.



edit: cheap discs might have straight cooling vanes so it then doesn't matter.

Yes the 1.2 is essentially the same as a mr wheel.

Does anybody know if the 9MR BBS rims have better or worse clearance than the 8MR wheels?
