To the OP, I'd suggest you look at wheels and tires first, and consider the brake clearance as you select wheels. The spacers throw off the correct geometry / offset and you might need so much spacer to clear the brakes, that you would move the tires outside the wheel well (not sure how much is needed).
The one thing I don't want (read: can't justify) is buying new rims to fitt new brakes.
maybe I will look into rotors and pads that are more head resistant.

Than again, wider rims and tires look damn nice :-) ...... I am afraid the mod bug got me again :-(

It's about precisision, repeatability, a more distributed pad load for less fade and a larger thermal mass to absorb the conversion of kinetic energy to heat.
There is a massive difference between old drum brakes and modern disc brakes, there's no comparison. The difference between Brembo and standard Mustang brakes means very little in comparison to the difference better tires make.


For a one stop test, the same Mustang with the only difference being standard versus Bembo brakes, there will be little if any difference in stopping distance. Brembo brakes are for repeated stops, and dissipating heat better, that's where they shine.

If all one does is street driving, the Brembo brakes mean almost nothing.

As long as you don't get carried away with spacer thickness I don't think you'll have any issues. You'll have to do some math to figure out what you need but I don't think it's very much.

Are you sure they are 25mm? That's a lot.

I'm pretty sure he was being sarcastic.

Positive they are 25mm

Eibach Pro-Spacer Hubcentric Mustang Wheel Spacers - 25mm - Pair 90.4.25.010.3 (94-14 All) - Free Shipping

Not sure how much clearance you need but you need at least 1/2 an inch to clear the brembos. there is one guy who reviewed these that is doing the same thing as me, using the stock 18x8 rim with the 4 piston brembos.

I see what you're using. I was picturing a different style spacer.
