In fact, we receive this question all of the time. The good news is we have a tool that can be used to answer these questions. 

So what is this tool? It is a very simple wheel fitment template that our R&D department has created that is application specific and available for our most popular kits. 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.
