Question Stoptech's 380,355 VS. OEM calipers

im looking to upgrade my OEM brakes to a stoptech BBK. i want to make sure that the brakes will clear my Non-OEM rims. Can a vendor post pic of a side by side comparison and dimension of the BBK when compared to OEM.

from inspection i can see a good amount of room behind the spokes, but i want to make sure.

Also vendors feel free to send me quotes for a stoptech bbk.

All feedback is appreciated.

You are not going to accomplish anything with a picture. I suggest you contact the wheel manufacturer to determine if they have tested their wheels with BBK's. You can also download templates from the brake manufacturer to assess fitment with your wheels. I would start with the wheel manufacturer.

Stoptech has a template that you can print from its website that will allow you to measure. I've used it. Its pretty simple.
