Will a Disc Brake System Fit My Car's Wheels?

Posted by mpbrakes1 on Jan 24, 2017 11:38:19 AM

Wheel fitment is a huge concern when doing a disc brake conversion. Will my stock wheels fit? What wheels do fit and what wheels don’t fit? These are all very good questions. In fact, we received an email just the other day from a potential customer and he was asking these very questions. Well, we have a tool that can be used to provide these answers but unfortunately people don’t seem to know about it or are not sure on how to use it.

So what is this tool? It is a very simple wheel fitment template. Our R&D department has created a template that is application specific and available for our most popular kits with more and more coming down the road. The template gives a cross section of the disc brake system that can be placed within the wheel to determine if adequate clearance is available. The use of it is very simple and if you’ll read a little further, we’ll walk you through it and give some pointers.

Can I Get Away Without A Complete Drum To Disc Conversion?

Recently, we wrote about converting manual to power brakes whether your car originally came from the factory with drum or disc brakes. We received several follow up questions from people with drum brakes looking to upgrade to better braking - but trying hard to stay on a budget.  Since the hardware at the wheels and brake lines can remain untouched after converting to a power assisted pedal, we were asked, "Can I just add a booster and new master cylinder to my car?"  Essentially the questioners were asking whether the booster master conversion kit or the complete brake conversion kit was their best solution.

Of course, like the answer to a lot of questions, it depends!
