    Do you have drums or disks? It shouldn't matter.....my wheels have a 4.25" BS and I had to lightly clearance ONE of the calipers on my rear disks. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    14FF isn't the issue. Front axle is where you will have clearance probs. I think most run 3.5".
    Try a search, I'm sure you'll find something.

    yeah the brakes in a ff14b stick out of the rim quite a bit towards the pumpkin so rim clearance isnt really a problem. I have both 2.5" bs rims and 4.25" bs rims and neither really comes close to the brakes.

    A buddy is running 4.25 bs and cleared the drums then went to disks and still cleared. So no worries.
