    Default VXR Brakes SRi Wheels

    Just bought some vxr calipers, may have dropped a massive b*****k!

    Will vxr front calipers fit under my standard SRi prefacelift 17" alloys?

    Cheers

    Correct, but as I have pointed out before - THE DESIGN IS DIFFERENT. This may effect the fitment and clearance issues. Not all 17" wheels are the same.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    The spoke clearance is different to any other 17in wheel hence why the police spec use them.

    I have seen a picture of a Vec with the VXR's under 17" alloys that weren't the police ones - it may have been the preface SRi's but I can't remember for certain...

    No not 100%, but insisting that they are 17" so maybe ok isn't correct either. The police chose that design for a reason.
