Brake project got put on hold. As my wheels don't clear the new brake caliper. Looks like I will need to order new wheels. So been looking for them.

Installing the new clutch slave cylinder and new lines. Looks like the pervious owner had replaced the slave cylinder twice, but used aftermarket. Which he had to modify the metal clutch line to fit. So I am making a new line. Couple pictures of that.

Out with old.


Old line next to new line.


New rubber line vs old line.



New fitted.


Also got a bracket to get powder coated. As it was rusty.


So just waiting on the bracket to come back. Then can finish the job.

Thanks. More to come.

I feel your pain, Charles. The 3KGT calipers stick out a TON. I went through the same wheel dilemma when I installed mine. Spacers, get new wheels, get a different brake setup...FML.

I'd start tackling the problem by figuring out how far you are off. Would a 5mm or 10mm spacer get you to where you need to be? If you're dead set on getting new wheels, keep in mind, spoke design will play more of a part than offset will. Just to give you an idea; The BBS LMs I had were +39, and the Work wheels I currently have are +30. I needed a 10mm spacer up front in both cases. With the wheels I currently have, the 10mm spacer up front probably only gives me 2-3mm of clearance between the spoke and caliper. The TE37 spoke design looks pretty good form a clearance standpoint. I know the RPF1s provide good clearance, and the Evo 8 Enkeis clear the 3KGT brakes straight up. Hopefully that helps you when shopping.

Before you buy new wheels, I'd just see how far you are off. Take a set of washers, and stack them up on all 4 studs until your wheel clears the caliper. Then, take a mic and measure the washer stack. That's an easy way to see what thickness of spacer you'll need. I found the washers that come off the head bolts work great, but any washer will work. You'll just need a shit ton of them. You can even snug up the lugs and set the car on the ground, to give you an idea of what kind of fender poke you'll have. In your case, I think that's going to be the dealbreaker. Judging by how your car currently sits on the TE37s, 10mm will have you poking out too much.

I did check need a 10mm spacer to clear. Can't do that though with the TE37's I have. Sticks out to far. Don't like that look. I have found the wheels I want. Just got to special order them. TE37V will be up for sale soon. Sad because it is my all time favourite wheel, but these new ones are sick too. So over all I will be happy.

Bracket back and line fitted.


And installed the new oil cap.


Tomorrow I will make the new clutch metal line. Should be cool. Got my own little line bending tool.

I would stay on the Rays train if I could. These Work wheels weight 4lbs more per a wheel.

Going with 17ich. No staggered.
