Brake options for 5 lug adaptors on 51mm struts


If one uses a set of adaptors to run 5 lug hubs on standard E30 51mm struts, what options are there for larger brakes?

Depends on the adapters. Most use E36/E46 brakes of which there are several brake size options

Oh, there is a 42mm rear piston option from the E46....interesting. Though I guess that would still have parking brake fitment issues.
