Thats cool, but I am sure it has ALOT to do with WHO you are out on the track with, you know...

Offset does not determine caliper clearance, pad type does. You need to find out what pad type you have. If these are Rickdogg's old wheels and looking at the fitment, it was, I doubt this BBK will clear. He had Rotora's and Rotora calipers are smaller than STOPTECH's. You should seriously print out the STOPTECH caliper clearance chart off their site and check yourself.

you will need spacers for the front for sure. i have the same wheel upfront and have to run a 5mm spacer.

i'm pretty sure you will need spacers for the rear too - i'm putting mine on this weekend and i have a 11.5 + 22 A disk out back and i'm questioning if it's going to clear.

This is what I was afraid of. Rick informed me that these "will" clear a 14" BBK. However after my research, after I bought them , I don't think they will also. I'm not a fan of spacers also but if needed, and will work, I guess I will. What size spacer do you recommend?

5mm for the front - i couldnt tell you until i mount the rears, but your rears are different than mine. the easiest way would be to goto the stoptech page and print out their diagram. and take of a rear wheel and measure to see if it will clear

Would be easy but kinda difficult when I'm in Kuwait & my car is in Colorado.

Don't worry bout the mis-matching lugs. I've got the PMU lugs to match these days... All thanks to Andy!

actually both offset and pad type can determine brake clearance, because not all wheels have an option of multiple pad heights for a given offset.

So true, it does vary on the brand of the wheels but majority of the wheels we offer have a specific pad type face. I guess the lower-end brands don't really do. I was suggesting to RobertK to find out what kind of pad type he has as I'm not too familiar with Work wheels.

I hear ya - it atually has nothing to do with low end or high end. It's something specific wheels have or don't have.

He will definitely need front spacers. I can't say on rears as I've never sold/used that size
