    Will 14 inch wheels clear brake caliper?

    Hi!

    A friend of mine has 4 Wolfrace slot mags to sell me for a really nice price.

    Now I wonder if they will clear the disc brake caliper up front? They are 14 inches.

    Kind regards /Peter

    They SHOULD clear a stock brake caliper as the majority of f's had 14" originally. Sometimes it depends on the wheel design though. Only way to know 100% for sure is bolt one on and check.

    Agreed, they should fit unless you have the HD Police brakes (with the larger rotor) .

    My '79 wagon came with 14's. Cleared the stock calipers easily. The new wheel fitting depends on the wheel.
