2013 track pack wheels

I just bought a set of 2013 brembo track pack wheels for my base 2011 v6 auto. I have read mixed threads about them rubbing and them possibly needing spacers. Will I need spacers or anything else? Should I also request a new tune from bama? I'm going from stock 17 BFGs to Pirelli Pzero 255/40R19. Thank you!

There should be no rubbing issues unless the car is severely lowered.

Tires will be about .7" shorter, since you have an automatic it would definitely be a good idea to get a corrected tune so the transmission functions aren't affected as well as the speedometer.

He is talking about rubbing when the steering wheel is turned fully left or right.

On mine, they do rub at full lock. Some have reported that it does and some have reported that it doesn't. YMMV.

Rubbing at full lock is a fairly simple fix, Steeda rack limiters.

Roush uses take off brembo wheels on their V6 cars.

You shouldn't have any issues with rubbing on your 2011 V6. I've heard of a few rare cases where they will rub at full turn on a lowered car, but I wouldn't say its common. The Brembo wheels will definitely look great!

Hit up the Bama team and we can update your tune for the different tire size, to insure that your speedometer is in good shape!
