Question 15" wheels on a SVTF?

Hi to everyone,

I was just wondering if someone tried to fit some 15" wheels on an SVTF to serve as winter tires. I had in mind the 10 spoke wheels from the ZX3. Did anyone try that? Do they clear the calipers? Does it fit?

Thanks in advance for your inputs.

15's on a SVTF

Won't happen. 16's JUST fit.
The brakes are to big on the front for the 15's to fit.
I needed winters for this year and the smallest I coud get were some SVT Contour 16's. Not all 16's will fit either so be careful b4 you buy.

Hope this helps.

Correct. You need the 16's The 15's won't make it.

If the spokes clear the brakes then you are fine. There might be some 15's, just got to try a lot of different ones.

I am running 16" SVT Contours for the winter.
