Wilwood kit is not fully floating two piece rotors. They are simply rotors that bolt to a bell housing.

EBC rotors go up to 330mm rather than Wilwoods 309mm. The total piston area on EBC 4 pot caliper is 4947mm vs the Wilwood 6 pot at 3264.51mm.

Your braking points just have to move up a few feet... :)

I'm simply saying that - I guess for me - Wilwoods sit in a sweet spot value/performance wise, and replacement cost is moderate, plus better logistics. Anything out of UK seems to take a lot longer than it should.

Has anyone been able to find a source for these in the US, or confirm what wheels these fit under?

EDIT: Nevermind. Looks like a 20mm spacer is required on the OEM wheels. Source - https://www.part-box.com/bbk007red1-ebc-bbk-balanced-brake-kit-300mm-4-pot-red-ford-fiesta-mk7-st180-2011-2017?search=EBC brake KIT&description=true
Didn't koozy post pictures of these under the stock wheels without spacers earlier in this thread?

Where did you find the EBC Big Brake Kit piston diameters?

First time, long time.

Reviving this thread to see if anyone has had experience fitting the EBC Apollo Kit. I got a great deal on the 300mm kit and couldn't pass it up. However, the calipers are huge and EBC recommends a 25mm spacer with the OEM wheel... with this large of spacer, paired with my Swifts, I am concerned about rubbing on track (not to mention accelerated hub wear). Anyone have success finding wheels that fit without a spacer? Thx

I'm wondering the same thing for 17 inch wheels or OEM wheels. Considering getting this kit but not sure like you if the car will be able to ride lower than stock height.
