Do not clear 7th Gen Celica rims.

Not even close. To fit they'd need to have an extra 1/2" of spoke clearance around the caliper, and to have more room around the outside of the rim. Yes, you read that right, they hit both the spokes and the rim at the same time.


SSR Comps however, will work. There's about 1mm clearance on the center-most part of the spokes, but there's room everywhere else.

Nice to know. So a spacer would not work. Might be time to sell my GTS wheels.

Did you make your own braket to mount the fronts? Any pics? Wouldn't mind seeing your SSR comps either. :smokes:

i will be getting brackets made so that they will fit with the entire brake rotor instead of milling the brake rotor down to ~297mm. however they are not made yet.

The diameter, width, and offset of the SSR Comps that this applies to would be useful.

Just a side note- any higher an offset or any less spoke curvature (which may be affected by width) and the brakes WILL NOT CLEAR. Words can't describe the size of the calipers effectively.

Another note- SSR Comps in this size will clear Subaru 4 Pot brakes with appalling amounts of room to spare. Unfortunately, on the GC we tested it on, it's a few inches out the fender.

as you can see, these brackets need to be slightly machined :wink:

p.s. putting ST205's F and R rotors and calipers into ST185 requires putting bigger master brake cylinder?
or an OEM one is efficient enough?

Oooo who makes that and are there more for sale?

The stock 185 master cylinder is fine and is actually slightly larger than the stock 205 one

You cant use 185 rotors with 205 calipers.

I don't know who's making it, but such brackets arrive from time to time on Japan Yahoo auctions
actually they're designed fot the Caldinas (that afaik have the similar setup as a ST185)

btw, thanks for the info about the master cylinder :wink:
