Im using 2wd calipers and discs. They fit under both my 15" and 16" wheels without any mods

I have just put 2wd cosworth calipers and discs on my s2 rst and the standard alloys hit the calliper.

I have a 10mm spacer and still the wheel sits against the calliper.

Is is this right or do I need to grind the wheel and calliper or just get a bigger spacer.

None of posts mention using spacers.

4wd calipers and 2wd disks mean a 1mm spacer between the caliper bracket and the knuckle. That is how I do it.

Its the 2wd calliper with 4mm machined off the mounting face I'm using.

Brakes are on and working. Just the wheel won't turn going to try using a 12mm spacer before I get the grinder out.
