Brembo 4-pot

Can anyone help me!!!

My friend had a pair of brand new 4-pot Brembo calipers. He's gonna sell it to me for a real cheap price if I interested in it.
I'm thinking of will it be too costly for using it. Do I need to change bigger and wider rims. Can it be fit on my original 156 16" rims. If not, add spacer will do or not? any negative effect? What disc sizes do i need to change? (GTV one)? Can I stay on to my orignal discs?

Anyone can give me advise!!! Thanks anyway!!

I'm not sure, but if I remember correctly, I think that with the Brembo calipers, you need at least 17" alloys. -As I said, I'm not 100% sure, so I'd wait for a confirmation or ask Autodelta for confirmation as they sell the same product.

156 GTA SW


The Fiat Coupé 20v Turbo uses 4 pot Brembo calipers, and it's factory fitted with 16 inch alloys. No problem there. But it uses 305 mm discs. So u prolly need that too. Luckily, the 156 GTA uses 305 mm discs, I dont know if they fit the standard hub. You also need to have a bracket made in order to bolt on the calipers, and theres also an issue of the center of disc vs the position of the groove in the caliper, and you might need special brake hoses made up.

It sure will be a hassle, but I'm also sure its worth it.

If you dont buy them from your friend, how much is he asking then

Autodelta dont recomend 16s,they say its to tight and you need 17s.Spacers will not increase the diameter of the wheel,they would be used to fit bigger wheels themselves.

If you dont want them or change your mind,i will pay good money for 'em!

But I discover GTV/spider 3.0 V6 came with 16" rims that using 4-pot brembo calipers. Obviously GTV 16" offset is different as 156 16". I think I need to talk to my dealer about it. Thanks guys.
