Will depend on what wheels you have. If your wheels fit a GP2 no spacer will be needed.

Also you will need a set of our stainless lines to hook them up

S lites are terrible for fitting ANY big brakes as the spokes are so large they always hit the calipers. I'd consider a set of aftermarket wheels as the cost of spacers and studs will offset some of them.

Like Way says, tough with the s-lites. I researched this for months and weeks, and eventually gave up on the idea, and just picked up a set of R56 S brakes instead (i.e. R53 JCW brakes)

I used 15mm spacers, my bet is with the S lites they will need that also. I test R91's and R113 and R112. They all needed 15mm or higher.
