If you are ever in Ohio, I'll swap front brakes with you, no charge

Heck I will even toss in my rear drums as well, hear they are even better in a rally situation (just made that up, no idea lol)

I'd love to find someone (somewhat) local who would offer the same deal!! I can order all new parts but its a lot more money than I want to spend!

So 15" wheels will fit my rear SVT brakes with no spacers or anything?? Just double checking- thought I read something somewhere about spacers.

Just a little update-

15" OE Focus wheels will absolutely clear SVT rear brakes with no problems!

I ended up going with Team Dynamics Pro Rally wheels for the front- which clear the SVT brakes with no problems! Its close, but they do clear!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
oem for the rear clears the 280mm rotors & calipers & aftermarket Team Dynamics Pro Rally wheels clear the front 300mm rotors & calipers= close but clears. So he's golden.
