Enkei NT03 17s on VI

Hi Guys,

Done a bit of a search but only found information on 18x9s.

I have the chance to get a set of Enkei NT03 17x8 +35 for a reasonable price. Does anyone here know if they clear the factory Brembos on my VI without a spacer? Trial fitting isn't an option as they are on the other side of the country.

Cheers,

Steve

I love the NT03 wheel and I'm almost certain they will fit. Worst case might be needing to use a 5mm spacer, which you could get away with whilst still retaining the OE wheel studs.

NT03 come with slightly odd fitting to others, however, if I remember well, we've managed to fit, without use of spacers, 17" on evo 9 with oem brembos and there was no issues


Edited
Just had a look at my old for sale add, these were exactly same as the ones you're after

Thanks for the info guys, really apprciated. They are going on my RS which will be used for sprints and hill climbs so I am not keen to run a spacer.

I share your reservations about using spacers, but I wouldn’t worry as long as you maintain hubcentricty and an adequate amount of free stud length.

Yeah if it was a street car I'd be more than comfortable running them, but I believe I might have a scrutineering issue for some track work.

In some strange twist of fate, someone local has one I can trial fit on the weekend. Will post results.

Sorry to bang on about it, but I really don't see why any scrutineer could have a problem with spacers per se. Use of non-steel wheel nuts might be, or tyres sticking out too far, but correctly applied spacers are in regular and frequent use in motorsport - as least in the UK. Maybe Aussie rules are stricter?

Yeah anything above drifting is fairly strictly policed, especially the CAMS affiliated events.

So good news, they don't foul on the calipers. I've ordered that set, will post up some pics when they arrive.

I should pull my finger and make some build threads for both my cars. Will aim to knock it out over the xmas break.

Thanks to all those who replied and helped.
