But ok,will buy some 10mm spacers and bolts all round...
Should be fine then!!
Will look extra good after... hahahaa...
Yeah we tried 5 mm spacers and then they only just touched the spoke on the inside...so 10mm should be enough.
Ok clear,THETYRANT wrote: ↑Sat May 12, 2018 2:37 pmIf 10mm will go onto hub ok then use those, ive got 12mm front and 5mm rear at moment but have run 15mm on rear, depending on tyres you can get scrubbing though so fit as small as you can for caliper clearance.
I don't think you will get 10mm on rear as hub spigot is longer than that on ones I've seen, 15mm is thinnest I've been able to run on rear of my 130's and 135's
I think the 135i/BMWP 6pots are a bit slimmer from memory and i know discs on those are only 26mm thick as opposed to 30mm on M135, also 6pot pads are approx 1mm thinner on 6pots as well so it all helps with clearance i guess, on my car the stock msport 208 wheels clear with M135i calipers without any spacers, its close but they do go on, on my 264 wheels they need spacers due to fouling back of spokes, cant remember if 5mm was enough but i do know that the hub spigot wasnt big enough to use a 5mm slip on safely as not enough left sticking out to locate the stock wheels due to taper on wheel bores.Poormans wrote: ↑Sun May 13, 2018 10:28 pmAfter laying up a potential m135i caliper/wheel combo it seems it might only clear with some small spacers. From the flanges the caliper bolts to, to the outside of the caliper measures approximately 124mm. From the split of the caliper to the outside measures 81mm. A safe clearance would be something like 3mm? Are the 6 pots any narrower in that respect? Smaller pistons (smaller, shorter bores) and the bridges might mean they're slimmer?
Might help people contemplating this upgrade!
I will try to put the m135i brakes on my car this Saturday with 10mm spacers...
Use E87 hoses, brake fluid for road use just use good quality brand Dot4 spec.walkie86 wrote: ↑Wed May 16, 2018 11:54 pmLegends,
I'm about to acquire some M135i brakes and will be fitting the fronts ASAP to my E87 130i. I've trawled this thread but couldn't find an answer to my Q.
While I'm changing the set up, I thought I may as well up-rate the fluid and fit some braided lines. What I need to know is: should I buy E87 or F20 braided lines to work with this set up?
Also, any recommendations for low-dust pads that see 95% daily duties and the occasional (very) spirited weekend blast on back roads?
Thanks in advance,
