Will these wilwood midilite brake calipers fit behind standard EK9 or DC2 wheels and if not how would i get them to fit?
These calipers are wider than the OEM setup so if you're using the standard 15" or 16" wheels you will most likely need wheel spacers.
You can download the wheel clearance template here: https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/2485/3582/files/Wilwood_Midilite_DC2-EK9.pdf?15992202596265540919 If you print this and fit it behind a wheel, it will show how wide the wheel spacers would need to be.
Bonjour, quelle est la forme des plaquettes pour les midilite?
This caliper uses the Wilwood 7816 pattern pads
Do these fit the mk1 1.6 or would I need to swap out the carriers for 1.8?
These fit any Mk1/2/2.5 MX5. The existing carriers, calipers and discs are removed and new fitted.
Can you supply kit without pads (?£). Also incorrect template is being shown in current Q & A.
Yes we can. Please contact us at sales@Freakyparts.co.uk
Do have replacement discs for this kit on your site? Also, is 15 inch the minimum wheel diameter?
Discs are available here:https://freakyparts.co.uk/products/mazda-mx5-wilwood-midilite-kit-replacement-front-discs The kit will clear some 15" wheels yes.
Hi there, could I have a printable template for these?
We have added the template to the page, you can download and print this out to check your wheel clearance.
Hi! I have your kit with "Wilwood Dynalite calipers" and I had to use 15mm spacers, so I'm not sure if a 300x24 brake disc will fit within a 15" wheel?
Hi. The caliper is around 5mm wider, but the disc used sits 5mm further back, so the width of the kit should be very similar. You will also need an extra 5mm of clearance on the radius where the caliper sits inside the wheel.
