    So long story short, I got new aftermarket wheels and had them on my 7th gen sedan and they were great. I decided to put them on my 6th gen coupe and the wheels immediately started rubbing my calipers. Basically I need to know what option I have outside of getting different wheels. I thought about trying to swap 7th gen calipers on to my 6th gen but haven’t been able to find anything on that. If anyone has done this or if you have any other ideas, please let me know. Thanks in advance.

    you could get wheel spacers. they say you can run 5mm on the oem wheel studs, but anything larger, you should get extended studs or get the type of spacer that bolts to the hub and has its own wheel studs that you attach the wheel to.

    ^that or depending on the degree of rubbing you might be able to shave the caliper a bit. What are the specs on the wheels?
