Default Just got LS400 calipers!

Ok guys I just some 96 LS400 calipers for my 97 SC300 and got all 4 for 200 bucks! But I found out that they didn't clear my stock 5 spoke wheels lol. Will they easily clear some 18s without spacers and what else do I need? All input is appreciated thanks.

If you had searched, you would have found that there is no yes/no answer to your question as the brake clearance depends majorly on spoke design. Even if you have two pairs of 18s, both with the same specs, it's extremely possible that one will fit, while the other won't. you're going to have to somehow check fitment.

They will clear the 18"s if you have the right offset on the wheels. Post pics
