will stock 18s fit over a 380mm brembo on the rear?

as the title says i want to use it for a semi slick for 1/4 mile

if it won't fit what's the best rim/tire to go for?

As stated above, the OEM rear wheels will fit over 380mm ST Trophy's. I don't think they fit over 380mm brembo fronts. Not sure about the rears... Do you already have the wheels? If so why don't you test fit them?

380mm brembos are quite massive. I could not clear the fronts with te37 18 inch wheel without modification. I was assured by few members that the brakes will clear my setup but unfortunately the info provided was not 100 percent accurate. You should take the wheel off and do some measuring. You can contact brembo for clearance wheel size requirements. . Good luck

i think it's only the SL version of the TE37 in 18inch that can clear the brembos.

This is my setup with brembo 380mm

There are pics of the regular TE37's over 380mm Brembos on this site.
What offset are you running?

Don't know. But offset would not make a difference since the problem was within the inside diameter. Strange I know.

It is weird. The inner barrel does open up and taper at point since it was designed to fit over the 380mm Brembo's.
