240 Medium Brake Upgrade Brembo Caliper Brackets
The idea behind this kit was to give upgrade options for people who want to improve their braking performance but not be stuck running 17" wheels or larger. This kit utilizes a 4 piston aluminum monoblock Brembo which was designed to survive the rigors of street use. We have brackets that allow for 4 different rotor sizes. The rotors sizes are 286x26mm 302x26mm and 316x28mm and 320x28mm
One intended feature for this is to be able to swap rotors and brackets based on the season (If you want to run 15" snow tires in the winter you swap on a 286mm bracket and rotor and then if you change to large wheels and tires in the summer, you swap on the corresponding bracket and rotor but the calipers / pads / brake lines remain undisturbed.
If you want to run a 15" wheel the 286mm rotor is your best option. This will not clear all 15" wheels but it will clear many, it all depends on the barrel of the wheel and spoke design. We can provide a template to you to check your wheel clearance.
The 302/316/320 option is intended to work with 16" wheels. Note that only certain wheels will clear, sometimes a wheel spacer can solve this issue depending on the interference.
There are 3 bracket options,
- The 286 x 26mm bracket
- The 302 x 26mm / 316 x 28mm bracket *
- The 320 x 28mm
*=(This bracket is reversible and works with both sizes)
One key thing to know is that for the smaller rotor sizes the Calipers are machined to have additional spindle clearance. We are offering new Calipers that are already machined to simplify the purchasing and installation process. Every Caliper that we machine will clear the 286mm brackets but if you only want to run a 316mm rotor the necessary clearance modification is minimal if any and can be done with a hand file or Dremel bit. When using the 320mm brackets, the calipers do not require any modifications.
