They won't. The spokes on the RPF1 sit too far in. Need to run atleast a 10 mm spacer just to be safe. You could possibly do a 5mm, but might be too close. The EVO and STI guys say they won't clear their brembo's as well as the 3G TL guys.

You will need extremely low offset to clear it due to the spoke design.

Could you tell a difference in the GS caliper over stock? I'm having problems warping rotors every 5k miles

okay so a 18x9.5+38 rpf1 need about 17MM to fit with the rl caliper. thats basically a impossible offset on our cars without **** loads of camber. soooo what do i sell my rpf1s or the BBK
and do legend calipers fit i wonder?

It's not loads of camber. I've ran 9.5 +23 with no front camber. Stock camber and it fit fine. You'd have to probably swap tire sizes. People run 9.5 +15 with just fender roller and stretched tire.

But it really depends on what you really want. If you really want the brakes either run the spacers or get different wheels. Type s wheels look good on coupes. Or just sell the calipers if you don't wanna run the spacers.

Im reading this thread and i dont see any straight forward answers whats the verdict on rl calipers or just bigger calipers in general....i also heard evo rotors would fit the accord in the case of using bigger calipers...also will 17s be good for clearance.

RL calipers need brackets made to mount. There are BBK kits out there like Stop Tech.

I just run slotted and crossed drilled rotors from ATL motorsport and Hawk HPS pads, can't complain

the GS caliper upgrade is decent enough for my taste with daily driving, paired with stoptech slotted rotors and factory akebono pads works well. no spacer ****ery needed
