Well, I have a set of OEM 16's that I am not using right now, but I am in NM and GeneSplicer is in AL...

I'm sure there's some among the eliminator crew i could get my hands on. The kit goes on tomorrow since i just got the lower ball joints with castle nuts.

Assembled left side today... also added pic of the very light scuff job Andrew did on the caliper to assemble into the bracket - barely any taken off.
What size spacer would be required to mount 15x9 6uls? 10mm?

Have we got any further installed photos? We tried to get these to work in NZ for years. Sadly the current exchange rate makes buying this kit from the US very costly, otherwise I would bite the bullet.

Savington,

Does the rotor stay aligned over the bearings? I ask because you mentioned that caliber position is very inboard.

Is this a good summary of fitment?

So they fit:
- 15x 10 6UL
- With 5mm spacer 15 x 9 Advanti Storm
- With 5mm spacer 15 x 9 Konig Dial-In


They do not fit:
- 15 x 8 from anyone
- 15 x 9 Jongbloed
- 15 x 9 6UL ( requires spacer to be confirmed)

Thx.

The rotor placement is within ~.050" of center on the bearings. Far closer to centered than Mazda's own brake rotors.

Correct. They won't clear a 15x9 6UL, even with a 5mm spacer. You need 15x10s or one of those two 15x9s. For those of you looking with street/track dual-purpose cars on 10s, most/all 16x8s will also clear the Superlite.

Thanks for confirming and clarifying, Andrew.

Probably a long shot but... Rota K7? Any way I could check?

My 11.75" dynapro TSE kit just barely clears the wheel weights...which happen to be in the worst place possible!

Is it more of a depth issue or a diameter issue?

Also if I already have Trackspeed directional vane 1.75" rotors with a lot of life left, can I just buy the brackets and calipers?

Glad to see the 15x9 Storm S1 fit the superlites, I was thinking Dynapro but the Superlite is too tempting. What's a brake change look like compared to the dynapro? IIRC it's just a clip to pull the dynapro apart and change pads.

Superlight is the same, but you pull a bridge bolt instead of a pin.

Yes. Shoot me an email, I'll need to work up pricing and add this to the site.

e: Went ahead and added it. Select "Superlite" then "No Rotors" and the site will unlock the option for you. $549+ship

Which version of the Superlite is in the kit? I find the Wilwood site a touch overwhelming... ugh.

GeneSplicer,

Have you gotten to test them out? Comments?

Has anybody tested this?

I have good brakes. I don't need these brakes. But the increase in pad thickness is super appealing. And I like nice things.

With the amount of work I will be doing this winter, the car will be in the garage (that's GARE-ahj, you continental US cretins) for quite a while, so I'll have time to test fit mine if I want to. And as I now have 8 of them, I can convert them into something else if I need to. But I like to know things in advance.

I'll have to wait for Smith to bring up a 16" to check clearance. I've got them on the car - but that's about it

Man, I have both 15x9 Dial Ins and the stock 16's that these hopefully clear. I could buy some 15x10s 6UL's for some 245/40 track tires, 225/45 summers for the 15x9s, and some all-weather 205/45s for the 16s. I hope they fit...
