Does anybody know whether the Tribeca can be fitted with the STI Brembo calipers and rotors? I have an extra set from my STI and was a bit curious...
If I lived by you, I could help you find out :lol: Would be pretty cool, Brembos on a Tribeca. Let us know what you find out!

Anyone tried this?

What brakes are stock on the '07 Tribeca's? I thought it was the same as the Legacy's, which you can swap directly with the brembo's.

As I Always Say..

If some is good, more MUST be better!!! I put slotted Brembo's on our '98 Forester and it made a huge difference. Of course it has front disc only and rear drum, so I felt it was a necessary addition. :lol:

It would only "make sense" to install front brembos on the Tribeca as they are bigger than stock (by a pretty small margin). The rears are A LOT smaller than the stock rears, so you'd probably want to keep your rears. Unfortunately I haven't been able to find any upgraded pads for the rears on the Tribeca, but you can get the Hawk pads for the fronts.

Brembo's "SHOULD" bolt right up to the front though.

Front calipers on Tribeca appear to be straight LGT calipers. So Brembos should fit on front without any issues, or one can use Hawk pads to do just the pads upgrade.

Rears might be Outback XTs fronts :) Someone may be able to confirm this, i am not 100% sure.

Is necesary to use any kind of wheel spacer to avoid STI caliper rubbing with the rim? (I have the original rims)

A friend have given me a STI 4 pots front Brembo caliper to test if it fits before buying them, and I see that the distance between the outer part of the brake disk and the rim coud be not enought.

Thanks.

yes, Brembo STi calipers fit up front on the Tribeca. i'm running a 30mm ichiban spacer w/ extended studs on my 08'. Everything is bolt on, no modifications necessary except the removal of the factory dust shield. Even the Goodridge stainless lines fit directly on the Brembo calipers. Hope this helps!

The problem is that in Spain, laws a very strict about modifying you car, and with spacers you can't pass de periodical inspections. As the Tribeca is a rare car here, the STI calipers in black pass the inspection because they don't know if are original parts of the car, but the spacers are seen easily and I can't pass the inspection with them.

Do you know if the Brembo caliper can be used without the spacers? or the rim will rub the caliper?

Thanks a lot.

I haven't tried to fit the factory wheel w/o the spacers over the Brembo's. Initial inspection says it may be real close, but then again the factory STi wheels were fairly close to the calipers w/o any spacers so it just may fit. Sorry.
