Re: 2wd swap

Love when new parts require more new parts.
Our camaro calipers won't clear our American racing wheels.

Rocket racing says theirs do.
Any one have experience with them.
I notice it's a holley brand now.
At $550+ I'd like some 1st hand experience

Which AR wheels? TT's are known offenders of the 'do not clear' list.

The Rockets do offer greater caliper clearance but I've seen guys run spacers on them as well. What exact calipers/rotor combo? That's the bad thing about the 'big brake' set-ups from late model cars (or aftermarkets sources) they're mainly designed w/a bunch of pad offset required to clear fat/long calipers. Old school wheels don't have the same wheel center/barrel shape which helps.

Building a small, high rpm engine with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive.
It's like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.....

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol.

Re: 2wd swap

American racing Rodder

10 spoke 20x9.5 and x8
With a ss camaro brembo caliper. Would need at least a 3/4" spacer.
Of 2 wheel companies I emailed only rocket responded.
Said their attack wheel has 1.9 inches of caliper room.

The other option is baller stuff. 5k+ in wheels or 5k brakes isn't in this blazer project.

2018 SS Brembo caliper
2018 Z51 Vette rotor

I'll ask for 100% verification but don't believe he's running a spacer:

If he isn't that settles it.
You know if those are 20s?

They are 18x9's. I would think 20's would clear w/o issue. You could always order 'off the shelf' from Summit to test the fit for clearance.
As long as they aren't scratched, dinged, or have tires put on them, they're returnable if there's an issue.
