Minimum required clearance
what is the minimum clearance required between the caliper in the inside of the wheel? I have a set of 3 piece modular wheels in 16" dia, and bolted one up to my SorT 13" disc brakes. There is some very minor interference between the outside brake pad locating tab and the inside of the rim that I could take care of with a little grinder work. The wheels are Eplison 3 piece modulars, cast mesh centers and a forged rim. They have black centers and a polished rim. Sort of a BBS knock off.

I had to grind the caliper body AND run .25 spacers to clear my Mustang Steve 2010 GT discs front and rear. Wheels are Legendary Scott drakes. 17x8 with 4.75 bs. But Legendary leaves you zero damn room for non stock discs. Looks like a million bucks but took work to get there. Calipers are still THICK so not worried there. 64.5 v8 car
