The wild part to me is that one set came out fine with the pry method. Like, putting on as much pressure as I could given the awkward positioning. The other set broke the second they were looked at.

For the sake of being thorough, and because I dont see them on the confirmed wheel fitment list, my Rays FXZ 18 x8.5 +45 in Face 3 spec, fit with no spacer and plenty of room.

Also can't remember what year Audi RS3 I used when I ordered my first brakes pads, anyone know? I need to order pads lol.

I always search for 4 pot STI or EVO.

Anyone know if the macan calipers will fit with 17”x8” motegi mr131 traklite’s?
IIRC, those don't fit PP brakes without spacers, so I'd guess no.

They do fit the PP brakes, just have to run the wheel weights closer to the inside of the barrel

We have a member that used to run those wheels with PP, and they fit with the weight locations you describe with used pads, but he got interference when he put fresh pads in, and had to run spacers.

In my opinion, that means they don't fit without spacers.

When doing a bit of searching prior to my post I believe that person had the 17x7 version of the mr131’s. The pads wouldn’t play a role in my situation. I just wondered how the macan caliper sat compared to the PP caliper. If they extend further from the rotor more than the PP caliper then I can’t use them.

The person here that was running the 17x7 was on a non-PP GTI. At least this is the only one I seen here... I was researching when I bought my Motegi.

I think I seen one person that said they fit with minimal clearance on a 17x8, but that would depend on the break pads used. So minimal clearance with PP means won't fit with Macans.
