The brakes i just bought to not fit with my wheels due to the wheel offset not being enough (calipers would hit spokes). Does anybody know if they make new spindles that set the rotors in closser so i could get them to fit with my wheels? I need about 1" of extra clearence but do not want to add wheel spacers and throw off the steering geometry. If not i have them for sale because i cannot return them. (never used 13" brembo 4 piston from the 2000 cobra R kit)

I don't think anyone makes such a spindle, but look into a wheel spacer. I don't know if 1 inch is too much of a spacer to run, but give maximum motorsports a call and see what they have. Or you could do like most people do and get wheels that actually clear your calipers.

IIRC, both the 17" '95 R and 18" 2000 R wheels fit those brakes.

I've seen '95 R's (real R58's) advertised for less than $150/per in the Mustang rags.

The problem is I already spent a grip of money on 18" BBS wheels where i would probably loose the cost of the brakes if i tried to sell them and get a replacement. Plus i dont like the look of the ford wheels that fit the brakes. Do you think a 1" spacer would screw up the handeling and make it look like one of the lowriders with the stick out wheels?

I say we should trade calipers. I have some polished cobra calipers that will fit and your Cobra R calipers will clear my wheels. :)

Or buy rims that have the proper clearance. I dont think spacing 1" out would look good or have good clearance of the fender lips.
