Shouldn't be an issue.  Brembos fit under them.  The old Cobb BBK does not smile

STi Brembos? I don't believe that is accurate--the owner of a car for sale a while back said he had to run a spacer to clear the stock 17s I believe (not to thread jack here).

Thought I had seen it posted, perhaps they had a spacer I didn't know about?

A 10mm spacer will do the trick up front (my winter set up) You can get away with a smaller spacer but I'm not sure the exact size.

What parts would I need to do the the whole swap? Front and Rear.  Do you lose the rear dust shields?
