« on: April 19, 2016, 08:53:27 am »
Do 16" Alleggeritas clear Brembo calipers?

Thanks!

    That's bad. Is it only Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.2 then that clear them?

    Thanks.

    If they ar 16" too, they will not fit with 4 pot Brembos.
    And the adhesive balance weigths will build 3-4 mm on the inside of the rim too, may hit the caliper.

    I've got a schematic from TD and will try.

    Have you actually tried or do you *think* they will not fit?

    3mm is plenty of clearance I think.

    I am looking for a 16" wheel that will clear Brembos.

    I'd be curious to trying them. With the right offset and alloy design there is no reason why a 4 pot caliper and 305mm disc won't fit behind a 16inch wheel. OZ wheels are generally very good for fitting over large brakes.

    If the wheel weights are in the way you can get ultra slim wheel weights or even have them moved to the back of the wheel.

    Plenty of people in the clio world run speedlines with the same 4 pot brembo and 300mm discs.

    Sorry, I only think, I tried to fit 16" alloys on mine, but that was another brand.

    Very interested in your findings Fpan. I'm thinking of going 16s, and it's only a matter of time before I upgrade my brakes to Brembos.

    Somewhere in my old cars thread are pics of coupe wheels that should clear brembos as the coupe has brembos as standard :thumb:

    I haven't had a chance to offer the CAD drawing to the hub/caliper yet, will do so this weekend.

    Wow, beautiful car.
    Do you know the offset of the Coupe wheels? They don't look bad actually, the more I look at them the more I like  them!
    The question is whether the Coupe has the same size Brembos. If I find a local set I'll try them on. I guess you have already sold the wheels?

    Sorry couldn't tell you the offset and wheels were sold with the car two years ago

    Dont have pics but there was twice the ammount of clearance at the side of the caliper with the coupe wheels compared to the ss wheels

    I had planned to fit brembos, the coupe wheels were my winter set they were bought as I'd calculated that they would easily fit over the Brembos but  Abarth never released the yellow callipers before I sold it  ::)
