So does anyone know what I need to use these calipers, like how much space from the hub I need, or any other parts or modifications I would need to get/do

I am attempting this setup right now with my Konig Freeform 18x8.5 ET35 wheels The following pictures are with a 5mm universal spacer. For reference, the same wheels in 18x9.5 ET35 almost have an inch of clearance without requiring spacers. Rotors are spec for the Nissan Rogue with 3rd row seats - any year should work, just check they are 320x28. Genesis Coupe 340mm rotors will not fit because they are too tall.

Konig recommends at least 3.5mm of clearance to be safe, and unfortunately I didn't measure that in the first dry test fit so I will have to try again. We took off the stock caliper and set it to the side without removing the brake line, and installed this one onto the bracket without any modification/custom brackets. The dust shield has to be slightly trimmed for them to not sit between the caliper and the rotor.

If I was to go with the minimum 5mm spacer as shown, it would be the H&R 1065640 as it's hub-centric and 5x114.3. However, I'm thinking I may need to go custom and get a 6 or 7mm for peace of mind. Since I can't find any options, I would tremendously appreciate any help in finding those sizes, OR does anyone have experience with custom spacers and reputable brands?

Those look nice! Will any of these fit on stock rims?

What made you pick the Genesis Brembo's? Is there any other used Brembo's that people have stuck on 10th gens? Is it really just a matter of getting the spacing with the spacers right? What other factors go into finding a set that will work with our Si's?

very cool! was wondering if there was a DIY Brembo job we can do.

Also, just an FYI on the DC5R Brembos (in the video), if you go with them, you have to go w/ the smaller S2000 rotors. I'd rather not do that...

same question as @shipdawg
Was there another user attempting this, or you heard this from the rumor mill? Thread???

For it to be a full bolt on, you have to make sure the caliper bolts line up, otherwise you'll need a specific brake. The Genesis calipers indeed bolt right up. The only issue is that you'll need to find wheels that will clear the calipers (they are huge). I had to sell my two sets of wheels and has to find 2 sets that clear them. I personally do not like using spacers, that's why I sold my previous sets. Here's my 17s. Advan TC2 17x8.5 +31.

Would we need a different brake rotor? or does the stock SI rotor works well with the genesis caliper? Very interested and thank you for the info
