first of all.. hi everybody!

ok so i whant to buy 300zx front 30cm aluminum calipers... i know that the 15 in. tear drop dosent clear the brakes but i was wondering, if i put wheel spacers can it clear them? actually i have 17in. rims but dont whant to go to the track with them since the steering is to hard with them so thats why i whant to use the 15in. ..... thanks guys

I think it depends on the offset but not exacly sure. I know 26mm clear. maby if you got 5mm spacers it'll clear the 30mm but then I'm not exacly sure.

If you can afford z brakes then you can afford to run the correct rim.
You won't get those teardrops to fit unless you have like a 5" spacer.
That = stupid.
So run the 17's you have or purchace new rims stock z32 maby?
And wtf is steering hard for you with 17's?

There is a good 300zx brake writeup. The teardrops won't fit without a huge spacer. Some of the 91+ SE alloys fit, but there is varying information on the internet about which ones do or do not. Just get some 16" S14 SE alloys or 300zx wheels and they will fit fine.
