OP if you want a set of 135 calipers with the custom brackets you're developing already on them PM me, I think I'm gonna switch from these to a different set of brakes... They do fit under the style 68 wheels but you're gonna need a set of 12.5 mm spacers. I ran this setup under style 68s for about a year. Caution if you buy the kit from ECS for $1600 they won't tell you that you need the spacers... But you do.

There is a wheel fitment template on the site to show people how their wheels will fit with the kit. I always suggest using it to insure fitment of your wheels and our kit.

Dont get me started on the headache I had with your brake kit. I dont want to give you a bad name just because I had a bad experience, I have had friends that had excellent experiences with ECS! But James if you want to know what happened you are more than welcome to PM me.

Any updates? I'd be in for brackets, and upgraded pistons and boots if you did them separately also.

Well this was like 7 months ago. I have a full setup on my car but was just selling some extra calipers I had.

Long gone now.
