    Has anyone got the following combo?

    ECS stage II 993 porsche brakes and 18" rs6 replica alloys...
    Are they're any clearance issues with the caliper and spokes?

    I thought as they cleared the 17" avus wheels, 18's would be fine, but seem to have a slight issue.

    Thanks for any info.

    Do you mean stage 2 or 3? or 2v2?

    Stage 2 - Porsche Boxster callipers, standard S3/TT discs
    Stage 2v2 - Porsche Boxster calliper, ECS 2-piece 330mm discs
    Stage 3 - Porshce 993TT callipers, ECS 2-piece 320mm discs

    The RSTT's are know to have clearance issues, and i believe most people with 993 callipers use spacers to clear the calliper.

    Cheers

    Sorry Rich, meant the Stage3 ones, ok will have to go the spacer route, as its hitting the caliper.
    Any idea which depth spacer? 0.5mm/1mm or 3mm?

    On the ECS site, there are wheel template guides... Download this, print it, cut it out, and try it... This will allow you to measure what size spacers you need to fit them. Any problems, give me a shout!
