I don't think so.The problem is the drop center! On most wheels it drop down and overall of 1in lesser than the diameter so even if the wheel is an 18 the drop center is any where from 16.75-17inches in dia.Now I have 18's on the car right now.So I can't complete this project til my 20's come in.But when I bolt everything up I'll try a 15mm spacer and I'll let you know.Give me three weeks sorry.

i think ill have to stick to my current setup and make brake cooling ducts to compensate for smaller rotor.

Your right like I mention to stct300 the drop center is the biggest problem.With these rotors you would diff. have to go 19-20's.I think that's why the factory wheels on the IS f are 19 inch's .Good luck with the cooling ducts.

I have to say, good job //LRD! This is definitely something that a lot of people will be interested in, especially if the TT calipers work as well.

Thank you.But I have to report that tonight in the extreme cold weather of south Florida.It's like 60 degrees man it's freaking cold!!!! I and my friends Wickedsc and Chevii which has the TT brake's try the template and it didn't work.The mounting holes were a little off so I made some changes to the template and we will soon see. The CNC guy has the new specs he pick up the template from me tonight and said I should have the bracket back come Tuesday.And By the way I kidding bout 60 being cold it was all done for dramatics. lol

sorry for the noob question but how safe is this?
bracket is frail in appearance and the bolt hole for the calliper in the bracket looks kinda close to the edge.
