    All You do is modify the hub a little, so every rotor fits. You'll have to replace the rotors eventually anyways....

    Anybody looked at the Cadillac ATS Brembo calipers as an upgrade? Newest swap for the 03/04 cobra guys for a cheap front brake upgrade. Curious if these could be adapter to work on Marauder.

    Not sure why, the set that Zach and Jerry have are perfect

    Because they are 4 piston fixed vs. 2 piston floating.
    You "feel" the difference because you want to "feel" the difference. Since you just spent money on the upgrade you "have" to feel the difference

    If it's a Brembo more than likely they will not work. The front spacing will be too wide to clear the backside of the wheel.

    You could use them IF you plan on using a spacer. Which I hate the thought of using.

    I tried a set of Brembo 4 piston calipers from a GT500 and lost $$ trying to make them fit behind a stock wheel. Gave up and went to this setup!

    Good luck, keep us posted on your results.

    Can anybody tell me if the 05+ Mustang wheels clear the calipers? Not the diameter specifically, but the spokes? I had American racing torq thrust 18x9 prior to the brake upgrade and afterwards, the spokes of the wheel hit the face of the calipers. I ended up replacing the wheels and kinda got stuck specifically with a set I'm not overly enthusiastic about. I don't have oems, I know they can clear, just didn't have any. But looking at maybe some mustangs.

    It would be helpful to know which of the litany of offerings you're referring to.

    I can say with certainty that the wheels seen in this picture do in fact clear the Zack brakes.

    I would think a machinist would put the rotor in a lathe since thats what is used to to turn down inside or outside dimensions usually. But what do I know.
