What 15" wheels clear svt brakes?

I have a set of nice new 225/45/15 race dot tires for my road course event coming in june but I will be upgrading the front to svt brakes so I need to know what 15s fit the svt brakes..

A list with weight will be great aswell.. That way I can find what Im looking for easily enough.

Thank you

-Gabriel

To add to this thread:

I'm looking to do a brake swap too, but drive a crapload of miles, so like to use my 15's for that. Does anyone have the inside wheel diameter needed to clear SVT brakes, just in case there is something other than TD wheels that work?

most all 16's fit, select 15's fit,


most of the 15's that fit are euro and have different spoke designs, the spoke is what cause the issue not the diameter of the whel

I have mounted a set of Team Dynamics 15" Pro 1.2 wheels with 35mm offset on my SVT. I used a template to ensure that they would clear and thought that 35mm was the largest offset that would clear. Having mounted these I think that a 38mm offset would be possible and that even larger offsets could be used with a little bit of filing on the caliper body.

With a 35mm offset your 225s will probably rub unless you roll the fenders. I intend to use my wheels for winter driving and have 185s for snow tires. That gives about the same clearance as the stock 17" wheels and tires.

If you're interested in any TD wheels I recommend you contact Paul Eddleston at
paul@TeamIlluminata.com
Website is
www.TeamIlluminata.com

I'm not connected with either except as a satisfied customer.

No other wheels? Why do I remember reading something about some rotas or oz wheels somewhere... The more advice the better... Not really concerned About rub because I'm gunna have some pretty serious camber on the front and rear
