I recently bought pads and rotors for my Optima and I evidently bought the them for the 2.0 and I have a 2013 2.4. Anyone know if I can use the 2.0 calipers and if they will still fit with 17 inch factory rims? Thanks

May be a little more involved, but from the OEM catalog, the rear parking brake shoes and backing plates are different between the 2.4 and 2.0T, front backing plates, same. Not certain if the caliper brackets would be the same as they aren't listed separately, nor could I find info quickly.

The 2.0T on some models come with 17" wheels so no problem with caliper fitment, but you'd be better of selling the parts for the 2.0T and purchase the correct parts. The loss wouldn't be as great as the cost to purchase all the parts needed to do the "upgrade", not considering the aggrevation.
