    Enkei PF01 18x9 with 7mm spacer clears 6 piston Brembos. Race car things cause some light rubbing under hard braking. 35E75347-D8BE-4F6F-8B42-5F78308DAA16.jpeg 3B969E19-0DA9-4ECC-A4D5-ADE00FCD6021.jpeg

    that looks like a little more than a 'rub'. So wheel deformation under braking is causing contact? Maybe take a metal file and knock the high spots on the caliper pins (?) down say 0.5mm?

    For sure its the caliper bracket that moves the caliper into the wheel.

    I call it light rubbing because it's just scratching up the paint.

    Can anyone confirm the 18" Flow Ones clear the Brembos? Tire Rack has the 19x10s marked for rear fitment.

    Yes they do. Confirmed at Discount Tire. If you would like further confirmation they with order you one and test fit it to your car, the store near me wanted a $50 deposit to order it, which was fully refunded and the test fit was free.

    Which size?
    DT websites don't indicate they offer the Flow Ones?

    They show up on Tire Rack’s site. Either tire rack or discount can order them, the sizes I test fit where 18”, 18 x 9, 18 x 9.5, and 18 x 10.
    I went in with the Flow ones pulled up on my IPad, they called their supplier and had the wheels delivered the next day.

    Answer to this question is no. I’m not sure if I would go with anything off this post. Do Not I repeat DO NOT buy the HRE FF15 wheels In 18x9 it will NOT fit over the 6pot brembos

    HRE 15 have specially been engineered for the S550 GT and are guaranteed fitment, by HRE. There are many people running these for track on their GT’s. Did you order a set from an HRE dealer made specifically for the S550? Note that they are made for other vehicles also like BMW but will not cross fit to S550. BTW the HRE 1

    Yep ordered them from CJ. You’d actually need to get 18x10.5 or 18x10 with 10-15mm spacer.

    That’s really odd, I also got mine from CJPony and they fit perfectly on my 17 GT PP. By your sig you have a 19, maybe that’s the problem?

    I’m not sure I had the impression 15-20 all have the same brembos. You live and you learn
