You can print off the templates for BBK's online

example, here's stoptech's.

I don't think there is a option for a BBK that will clear a 17" wheel for the E9x as the fronts start at 355mm which requires a 18" minimum wheel to clear.

that's what I thought so too but there's a specific post on a tuner's forum about a particular BBK that clears 17x9 fronts.

Not sure if there is a BBK out there that will fit within the 17"

How about RB two-piece rotor with a performance pad combo?

this is from another forum: "17x9 Apex arc-8 will clear a stoptech 6 piston 355mm from bbk"

I have no way to confirm this, just reporting. (from = front)

We tried this last time and the ARC8 17"'s didn't clear so my customer had to order some 18"'s.

I used this combination for a while then used it again in late November. No issues at all, ever:
  • Wheels: 17 X 9 APEX ARC 8, ET 42 - ft and rear
  • Brakes: Stoptech ST60 355 X 20 - ft. Rear doesn't matter as it's a smaller rotor.
I even bought them from Harold. Are my front rotors not 355 Harold?

Maybe it was a Brembo or AP kit we did. We install many BBK's it's hard to recall what wheels went with it.

If "Jbass524" has confirmed fitment, there shouldn't be any issues.

And most 18" won't clear... lol

Most people ended up with spacer or larger wheels
