About 10 mm to be sure is enought space for heating dilatation. With a 10 mm spacer the free space between caliper and rim would be about 5 mm.

Sorry No... The OEM Caliber bracket is +20mm thick, so we machine 8mm off that surface. Thats OK, and now rotor is almost center of caliber...Stock beca rear rotor fit perfectly with tose Brembos.

NOTE!! BRACKET/CALIBER muts be on the same line with the rotor, be carefully when you machine the surface!!!

Also you have to cut a piece of that rotor cover sheet metal, otherwise caliber cant fit. Snips are correct tool for that job...

Sorry my bad English

When you machine the calibers ( or some workshop ) you/they must be sure
to machine exactly 8mm from both brackets, otherwise the caliber is not in same line with the rotor, example if you take 9mm from upper barcket and 7mm from lower bracket the caliber is not in the same line with the rotor...

Also when they machine the brackets the caliber must be in the line with rotor as vertically as horizontally...

ok, thanks, now is everything clear for me

now is time to look for rear calipers from STI MY'08+

p.s. one more qustion - the calipers holes are exactly the same as in OEM Tribeca rear calipers? (i mean the distance from centre of one hole to centre of other hole)

and what about calipers bolts? you can reuse the OEM Tribeca bolts or do you need STI bolts (I'm asking because in the case of front STI calipers you need a special bolts from STI calipers)

TomiT, one more question (if you don't mind )

can you check if the OEM spare tire clears the rear BREMBOs?
it's important for me because I just must have a spare tire...

I think there's no chance that OEM spare tire can clear front BREMBOs

at the moment I have front BREMBOs, but if it would be necessary I can rotate, for example, damaged front wheel to rear and use spare tire on the rear... but if rear BREMBOs do not clear spare tire that will be problem, because at that point teh OEM spare tire will be useless

TomiT, what wheels do you have on the Tribeca now? Are they STIs? If so, what model year? They look great.

Hi Tomi!
Tribeca rear rotor has 18mm thickness. Sti rear rotor - 20mm. There is no problem in this difference for rear caliper? It work properly with 18mm thick rotors?
