Default !!HOW-TO!! HX wheels on GSR or SI Front Brakes!

Here is a Little TECH for the Idiots that Still argue with me about fitting HX wheels on GSR or (99-00) SI Front Brakes.

Reasons why someone would put HX wheels on there car?
1. Being they are very light (11lbs)
2. Very Stock and Low-Key looking
3. Cheap ($200-$400 a Set)
4. Yes there are good tires to be had in 14" size (avs, azeines, Ao32r, etc..)

For the haters (yes its a real SI)



First, Take the SI or what ever Wheel you have Off the car and prepare to Install the HX wheels

Once you have done that, Get a Grinder (Dremal works just takes little longer) And make sure you wear eye protection!


Now Grind about ~1/16th-1/8th off of that Hanger thats on the caliper!



That should be the only spot you should have to grind, And it will take about 3-5 minutes per a wheel.

Eric

LOL... I was thinking the samething . Good write up. Take a picture of the finished product so we can see how much space the rotor takes up in the wheel well of the 14" HX rim.

That's what i was talking about in the earlier thread. https://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=554743

Too my understanding the 92-95 Si's did not have these, but the EX models did...


BTW: Sexy pics...

Damn, you'z a sexy bitch. I bet the men love you.

As for the wheels, very good. I've been considering getting a set, but I've been wondering about the brake clearance. I might end up getting a set after all.

Shaving the calipers (10 minute Job) is not only cheaper then Washers, But will allow you to Retain Factory Wheel Offset!


Here is a Pic of the Space between the Wheel and Caliper

Its the internet, lol. You think thats bad, I had a moron call me today arguing about a '00 GSR Oil pump is way different than the ITR oil pump, even thought its the same part number but he argrees that I'm wrong.

Maybe I should do the same, lol.
