You mean with the in-board brakes?

I've seen an e30 with motorbike calipers on his auto-xer. I don't remember what discs though... I'd have to hunt down the article.

clementine I read on another forum somewhere that they are, but don't trust my word.

What wheels are you guys running with the rx7's calipers?

Exact same. The 92+ calipers are thicker then the 86-91, but the critical dimensions are all the same, as well as the brake pads.

For a list of compatible wheels, search r3v for the "rx7 wheel fitment guide"

Just an FYI if anyone that wants to do this set-up is having difficulties finding the correct hardware around town you can use E30 flywheel bolts P/N: 11227805885 which is an M12 x 1.5 x 28mm(use these to mount the brackets to our strut housing) and use the original caliper bracket bolts to mount the RX7 caliper to your bracket P/N: 34111118948 ( M12 x 1.5 x 32mm) just in case you wanted new bolts. In both cases I believe they are grade 12.9 (imperial grade 10).

I have 17 x 7 ESM 003 w/ 25mm offset on the front right now, but I will also check my Konigs which are 16 x 7 w/ 40mm offset and a 20mm spacer (which comes out to et20 wheel)

Final look

In the end on the et25 17 x 7 esm rims I will have to get a 3-5mm spacer for the fronts but my Konig 16x7 et40 fit nicely with the 20mm spacers
