I think so because GSR brakes arent that much bigger then normal EX front brakes and HX can clear ex front brakes. Im 95% sure on this.

Youll probably have to do the spacing trick but you could look around on how to do that.

or you can grind down part of the caliper.

There is a thread on how to do it in the FAQ thread at the top of the page.

the only ones i could find at pepboys were more then 3mm....i haven't had a problem with them yet except i would rub at times....so i ripped out the fender wells

ive been too lazy to grind the calipers down but with spaces and maybe open ended OE lug's you should be ok

HX wheels will not clear EX brakes. The caliper must be ground down a little for them to clear.
