What wheels fit over 13" rotor Baer/Alcon 4-piston brakes???

Hello All!, I'm currently building a 84 Mustang SVO with full Griggs GR40 street suspension and Saleen SC style, 4-piston Baer/Alcon brakes up front. Found out tonight that my 17x8 S197 GT premium wheels don't fit over the huge calipers by a long shot.

Does anyone have any experience with these and what wheels will work for this fitment/application?

Any help would be appreciated...

17" Cobra Rs should clear, they will fit over my 14" Alcons.

Yup, looks like those are the ticket! The guy who is putting my car together tried them from another car in the shop, so that's what I'm getting...

What I've found...

Just thought I'd share what I found... The 17" Cobra R's for the 1995 Mustang fit nicely. The Tri-spoke 17" fits in diameter, but requires a spacer to push it out a bit from the caliper face. 17 x 9 Enkei RPF1's are ideal in that they will fit even over 14" brakes and are extremely lightweight.

17" FR-500s will also fit with no spacer
