Even though this may not be what you're looking for, but grinding the caliper down to clear the B13 wheels isn't a bad option.

Yes a 5mm spacer is fine but you need longer studs too. The H&R kit includes everything and its about $80.

Thought I already answered that for you? Yes it works if 5mm is equivalent to 1/8", I have done it and did not need longer studs. LIke I said once before, once the brakes wear some, you won't even need the spacer.

The stock studs are not long enough to safely use the 5mm spacers. I took my H&R spacers from rear of my NX to use on the front of my SE-R. I needed them to fit the stock wheels over NX brakes and the lugs kept coming loose no matter how tight they were.

OK, so i need to get the H&R spacers WITH the longer studs then. Awesome, i am gonna keep my car ultra sleeper style.

tlSeR20DE:
I am getting the brakes from new city nissan. I know the parts guy over there and he is cutting me a deal. Loaded calipers and rotors for $219, and he is not worried about the cores being different. Not sure if i can get you th same deal but i can ask if you want. The parts are aftermarket by the way. Are you going to the autocross this weekend?

1/8" is 4mm not 5mm by the way, for all you anal folks on here...
