I have been wanting to do this for a while and finally just decided to do it. I just got one test fitted and it fits. I had to take my wheel weights off and will find a new place for them but I have about the thickness of a quarter in clearance from the wheel to the caliper. Very happy with them.

I searched google and the stang sites for someone having done this to make sure they would work, but couldn't find anyone that had done it, so I thought I would post it here in the event anyone wanted to know if they would fit or not. Thanks.

Look great Ed. Do you think the clearance could get smaller when the brakes heat up on the road course?

Thank you, Curt.

I don't think so but I guess I will know after I run it...lol. I hope it is not an issue. If it is, I can swap back down to the 13 inch rotor. These calipers will work with either of them.

Still waiting on my Griggs stuff. Got my Pro M EFI setup and that is my next mod and then pulling the engine for my new one. Just been waiting for parts. Hope all is well with you, Curt.

Jay,

Here is a straight on shot of the brakes. You can see there is plenty of 'breathing room' between the rotor and wheel. The clearance issues were with the caliper and I am not sure that is really an issue yet. I will post up when I get everything together and the car done and run it. I doubt it will be a problem based on what I have been reading and hearing from others that do this stuff. Here is a better picture of the setup. This is a straight on shot. You can see there is plenty of clearance there.

EDIT: BTW, as far as the rear is concerned, at this time, I am running the older Baer setup there but plan on going with a T4 setup probably. I just don't want to go bigger on the rotor because I want to be able to mount slicks back there for the days I get that wild hair and want to go drag racing....lol. Atleast to see what it will do. ;)

Any updates? I recently purchased the same brakes and I'm hoping I can use my current 17" wheels.

baer has a template that you can print and cut and test on your wheels.



I have a number of SN95 17” wheels and found it wouldn’t clear any of the 17x8 wheels except for the 98 Cobra wheel. Tons of clearance on that one

Edit: the above is for the 13” kit. Baer also has a template for the 14” kit
