Technical Will a 14" wheel clear this Speedway brake kit?

Discussion in 'The Hokey Ass Message Board' started by Fordor Ron, Mar 18, 2014.

  1. I have this brake kit from Speedway on my 32 Fordor but the car is in pieces right now so I can't check without bolting it all back up.

    Will a 14" Wheel Vintiques Smoothie wheel clear? Found a tire I like but it only comes in 14" so I'm thinking of switching.

    Thanks in advance...

    I've got that same caliper and bracket on my roadster with 14" E.T. wheels. Not a lot of clearance, but enough.

  6. It'll work Ron, done it many times.
    Depending on caliper, ya may have to grind a little off the caliper depending which ya use
    It's tight but , go for it.
