Will a 19 inch SSR GT3 clear a Stoptech 355mm 4-piston caliper whitout spacers? I have searched the forum but i haven`t found a clear answer.

No you will need spacers.

I had this combo at one time and used a 15mm spacer. I think 10mm will do though.

BarryC, are you using spacers with your 19" BBS RS-GTs and StopTech BBK?


TIA

I have 15mm spacers on the front of my SSR GT3 setup and i run a 245/35/19 without any issues. The spacers give the car an even more aggressive look!

I'm pretty sure it is only the front that has issues.

BaRuMBaDo - no spacers with the RS-GTs. My reasons for switching were 5lb weight savings and no spacer. I'm running the 255 Toyos upfront with no problems. They're a little tall but they work just fine.

elken - my car is lowered (13.75" from the wheel center) and I ran 245s on the GT3s with no problems.

Thx,
Barry
