Since upgrading the brakes to the Cobalt Brembos in May, I've run spacers on my Turbo X 18" wheels (ALU77) in order to make them fit. The problem is the caliper is fat (sticks far outward) and it doesn't clear the wheel spokes. So wheel diameter is not the issue.

Today I finally tested it on my snow wheel/tire setup, which are 17x7" ALU79, and it doesn't clear by itself -- needs spacers. I was also able to test the ALU88 wheel (17x7.5") and the caliper does not clear the wheel spoke again. So the wheels that don't clear are:

  • ALU77 (18x7.5") [Turbo X Wheel]
  • ALU79 (17x7") [2008-09 Aero XWD Wheel]
  • ALU88 (17x7.5") [2012 Griffin "Twist" Wheel]
So, for those who have done the upgrade as well, which OEM (only) 17" and 18" wheels will clear the Cobalt Brembos?
