I've got 15" Blizzak snow tires with a few more seasons left in them. So I'm wondering if they're compatible with the SVT brake kit.

Pretty sure 15"s wont fit over SVT brakes.

Most retailers state that the SVT brake kit requires 16 wheels for clearance...

There was a post recently about this, there is at least one known 15" wheel that, by all accounts, will actually fit. Let me see if I can dig it up...

EDIT: Found it, it was posted with a fairly strong degree of certainty that Team Dynamics Pro Race 1's in 15x7 will fit. Given their low weight (~13lbs) I could believe the rim is thin enough to pass the caliper. I googled it real quick to find a pic, $130/ea seems pretty close to what you'll pay for them.

Those for a Cooper bolt circle and offset, which I dont actually know off the top of my head. Good luck, not sure I'd want to be the person to drop over $500 to test the theory, but if you do certainly post back to confirm they do indeed fit.

I contacted ROTA to see if I could do some fitment testing....

..the more options, the better. Im thinking the SlipStream is the best option with its flat face...

I fit my old stock steelies over the SVT brakes. I did have to do some sanding to get everything to fit. If I had to do it over again, I'd just get some nice 16" or 17" stock rims.
