    Default Will sawblades clear the S500 brake upgrade?

    Just wondering if the stock sawblades would clear the S500 brake upgrade.

    Car needs brakes before it goes on the road so was planning on upgrading... didnt have coin for new wheels right now but may have to wait a bit...

    Input?

    Thanks!

    Definitely not clearing the brakes.

    I am working on choosing new wheels ATM after performing that upgrade.
    I rebuild / upgrade Supra Differentials - PM me for more information.

    Should be able to add some spacers and have them fit. The 5 spokes just barely rub.

    So the ID of the wheel will clear the caliper? I can add a spacer for sure.

    What part of the wheel hits? The inside diameter of the wheel or the back side of the face/mounting surface?

    Interested to hear if this works considering turning my parts car into a track car.

    Also interested because my spare tire is a sawblade and so right now it'll only fit the rear which is a pain since most flats happen on the front.
