    I don't think it will, but curious if you can run 18" wheels with this kit?

    I have a 2016 TTS, that I am thinking about jumping ship on my Stoptech ST60 trophy: 355mm rotors, perfer running 18" wheels.

    Thank you.

    Take a good look at post #28. The smaller of the AP calipers has a much smaller profile than the oem in width and height. Several 18" wheels fit the stock TTRS so they should fit with ease with this caliper installed

    The Nardo TTRS in the first set of pics is running 18" wheels.

    When we designed the 372mm disc in our system, it was designed specifically to fit into a wide range of 18" wheels. The standard convention at the time was to use a 380mm disc. We didn't go that route, because it is extremely tough to get a disc that big into an 18. We went a little smaller in diameter, and made up some of the mass by moving to a 34mm thickness and using 84 internal vanes.

    Hi,

    Are you planning on selling a rear BBK set that includes hand brake?

    Jeff, I just picked up a 2019 TTRS, I'm going to order the AP front rotors for now and I'm wondering about sources for replacement pads for the stock calipers

    Your thoughts on having calipers painted? I'd consider getting an entire BBK if they were available in red or if custom painting would actually hold up over time.

    Thank you very much. We do have several Ferodo compounds for your car in the OEM caliper shapes. You can see them here:
    https://www.essexparts.com/my-vehicl...0front%20discs

    You can see the compound descriptions and a mu plot here:
    https://www.essexparts.com/brake-pads/ferodo-brake-pads

    We have had some customers paint the Pro5000R Radi-CAL calipers, but we can't really comment on the long-term durability of a non-factory finish. That would depend on who did the finish, the quality of the finish, it's application, etc. There are too many variables for us to comment on that unfortunately.

    Thanks, and please let us know if you have any other questions.

    Hi Jeff, I tried to order the rotors this morning but they are out of stock and the website would only go as far as selecting shipping method before going back to the shopping cart with an out of stock message.

    We have the components on hand to build the discs, they just aren't assembled. We can build and ship them within 24 hours of order receipt. Please just give us a call at seven zero four, eight two four, six zero three zero and we'll get your order entered. Thanks, and sorry for the inconvenience!

    Jeff, did you guys ever figure out if they work on the 2016 MK3 TTS? I had some email back and forth with someone at the shop, the conversation just died.

    Thank you.

    Unfortunately we have not. All we have is anecdotal evidence from resellers, customers, etc. We have never actually bolted one of our kits to a MK3 TTS unfortunately. If you are able to get us a car, we could do so. Thanks!

    I am on the westcoast, but my car is available to try, the thing is not fitments but bias valve size, and how the piston size is, over the stock version.

    Thank you very much for the offer. We unfortunately need a car at our shop in Charlotte, NC. That said, we can try to do some research on piston sizing. Yes, it's absolutely critical to get the piston bores correct! Many people blindly slap calipers on cars that create a completely inappropriate bias condition. We see it all the time, and it hurts performance rather than helping it!
