Wasn't aware there was any differences? Pretty sure the pad is the same part number up until series 8. Are your rims hitting the calipers?

Na, it is my wheels. My mounting service is flush but yours has a concave, if that makes sense?
Brought some S7 before should be the go.
Fingers crossed

Thinking of selling off the 235/50/15 rears R888s.
And going to a 225/45/15 Nitto NT01 for the ass, keeping the same size on the front 205/50/15

Anyone had any wet weather experience with the Nittos?

Anyone wanting some brand new only fitted 235/50/15 Toyo R888s?

The KMs doesnt really worry me, If i could find in a semi decent road tyre that would be ideal but it is more the profile i am after.

Nitto's apparently all good - lots of guys in states use them. Id just watch it in the rain on chip seal, could get a bit dicey. Id try get the same for the front if i was you.

So the S4 ( Gen2 ) RX7 Calipers just were not going to work,
After a few modifications to the orginal bracket and some Re-Jigging.
I managed to get the Batman RX7 calipers in a location where the wheel would spin.

As you can see on the last few pics i am playing with fractions in regards to clearance, but i think it is going to work.

The offset is slightly different,
I can grind more from the outside surface because the fluid bridge is less pronounced and transferred more horizontal.
Pads are the same.

The key factor was the fluid bridge meant i had a few extra MM to play with
