    Hi Guys... The biggest problem for Front Brembo brakes (rear is different, because of the e-brake), considering stock rims, is the "ET". Now I mount WRX STI my 2015-17 wheels and there should be no problems to mount 4 pot WRX STI MY2015-17 (also years before) Black (and Gold as well) Brembo calipers. (With these rims or at least similar measures, but with lower Et, as Akko suggested, cause these WRX STI wheels have a special design otherwise, with ET 55 they count Mount)
    On these rims you could mount for sure also big brakes like WRX STI MY2018 Yellow highlighter Brembo 6 pots calipers...)
    Already bought Brembo Calipers Rotors, Pads.... Going to paint black the rear brakes cause I'm not changing them (it would be possibile, but complicated, you can imagine the reason...) Gonna Mount front Brembo brakes the first week of may. Will post photo...:)

    Mounted ! the Wrx Sti stock wheels my15-17 that you see in the photo (18 8,5 et 55) have a special design to fit these brakes. Probably you can use wheels withsimilar measures but with a lower ET (35 could possibly fit) or wheel spacers. Do you agree Akko ? :)

    I think I'll be going down the same route of updating the discs and pads first, although I am interested to see how this all plays out with the Brembo upgrade.

    Side note, why is a brake cylinder stopper required?

    Better pedal feel, mitigates the firewall flex...
