GP2 Wheel Fitment

Please post here on what wheels you have found to fit over the GP2 front brakes as this may make a great reference thread later.

I found my BBS RGRs 17 inch will only fit with a 10mm spacer.

Also Factory JCW R112s also require a 10mm spacer to clear.

Will be test fitting some NM wheels this coming week.

At least state the known/existing offset along with the spacer size. That'd be more valuable than saying just the spacers...

Just a note for anyone checking, as well as checking clearance of the brakes you also need to check clearance from the front suspension. From my experience with bilstein coilovers on my JCW some some rims will clear the brakes with 10m spacers but may need 15mm for the springs. I suspect the GP will probably be the same.

The offset actually has very little to do with it, it's more about the spoke shape, and thickness that is rubbing on the calipers.

I would love to put on the NM RSe05 wheel on my GP. Emailed to NM about the fitment also.

I did not find the 10mm spacers in your calalog, do you carry them for the JCW R112 wheels.

No 10mm spacers as you loose the hubcentric hub at 10mm, that is why we do 15mm to keep that.

What's the factory solution for this? I was under the impression that they shipped with JCW R112 wheels if you specified runflats.

That's the first I've heard of it. Here in Washington, I had the choice of keeping Kumho Ecsta V700 tires or swapping them out with another All-Season version of Kuhmo tires. Never heard an option of different wheels from the dealership.

Ok, back on track. Volk Racing TE37 17" x 7.5" +37 offset all around work great with stock Kumho's. No clearence issues whatsoever.

Thank you Braminator... will also note that it is sitting at the lowest factory setting in those photos... Not low enough for my likings (particularly up front) so I will be swapping them out for H&R Coilovers on Wednesday. Stay tuned for an update.

Are you going to sell the stock CO's? I can wait to see it. I guess you have the roads that allow it to be low.

I am not a fan of the stock wheel on the GP's, so yours IMO is the best looking one so far.

I also am not a fan of the OEM wheels... I also have a set of 18x9 HRE's that I will be fitting this week- they are definitely more agressive- had an issue with fitting the TPMS sensors today so I have to do a little dremel surgery so they can lay flat on the barrel- those clear as well and will update with photos once I get them permenantly mounted.

I plan to keep them so I can switch them back to stock when the time comes. All my cars are low (minus my SUV) and I have predetermined routes everywhere I go I dont plan to dump it- but want it a little lower... would like the fronts to match the rears in my pics

That is one of my favorite wheels. I love the way they really show off the brakes.

Way,

Confirm you don't need a spacer with these NM Wheels?

What is the cost of the TPMS for each wheel? I didn't see them available on your site.

NO spacers needed.

As for the TPMS I need to see if these are any different as we ran into that issue before, but should be around $200

Way,

Would these brakes fit a regular r56 MCS directly without changing anything else major such as servos etc?

yes you can put them on your reg R56, but it won't be cheap.
