    Anyone running big brakes?

    So i want to fit my 300mm/4 pot brake combo under some 15inch rims.

    I was wondering if anyone has decent sized brakes under any SSR/Work rims of course old school types like mk2,mk3, longchamps, emotions and so on

    dont want to run 16s and dont want to have to sell up brake kit but if it comes to it they will be gone for something that will fit under 15s

    our friend Rue fit FC RX7 calipers under 15" wheels of various types and offsets including equips, dori doris and street reps.

    good for you, by the way. anything bigger than a 15" on a classic car looks weird.

    If it would help if we knew what you were driving... us Datsun/Nissan guys can run BBKs on some 15s.

    TE37V seem to fit/clear brakes im going to a shop this weekend maybe next to trail fit some of my upgrades on wheels. been told steel rims should clear the calipers for now till i can find a nice rim that will

    Also found most classic jap rims will fit if i run 10MM spacer so i might just run that on the front with longer wheel studs.

    but we will see

    I think wilwood has some kits that can fit under 15" wheels, you could probably build a kit pretty easily if you know the offset for the caliper and rotor.

    Would prefer not to buy another set of brakes.

    I have R32 GTR setup or landcruiser with a Ford rotor both 4 pot setups both with 296-300mm discs
