Won't bolt on as the offset is wrong. Spacers would be required, and are illegal in some states.

Just a point, Brembo's are brakes, not wheels. You're probably thinking of ROH Azuros.

Re: au 18*8 on el?

i know brembo make brakes, some of the best in the world.
i saw a add for wheel king in the trading post, vic, and they have em on sale for $2100, they have them written down as au t3 brembo, and they are tickford rims fitted to the t-series au's.
see attached photo, i don't know whether the wheel king add had a typo or not, if it did what are they called so i don't make a d*** of myself when i call other places for prices.

Re: au 18*8 on el?

The wheels were called the brembo by ford insiders due to it being one of the only wheels about able to fit over the width of the brembo caliper.
