you might need to use a small spacer (5mm) with stock OEM 95-99 16"SE rims, you have to check the clearance with the spokes (I think the spokes curve inward toward edge of rim and since rotor is all the way out it can rub in that one spot)

TEST FITMENT.. TEST FITMENT.. AND TEST FITMENT AGAIN

and when you're 200% sure you've got it set, then you paint them.

Good luck and post some pics of fitment.

always nice to paint the rotors so they don't rust so quickly. (not the braking surfaces of course).

First test fit.... No spacer(it's at home) No rotor(they're in my friends trunk) BUT......check it out :gaptheeth: only need to take it down about 1mm on this and the opposite corner and it should clear without a spacer

Those don't look like the same stock 16s that I have, you have 00-01 rims? Mine are 1999 se. But still looks good although very small clearance.
I'm getting my calipers back tomorow but doubt that I'll be installing until next week maybe week after.
