    Im looking at buying some work wheels Work Equip 03 but unsure of what disk type to choose.
    Just to confirm I'm thinking of getting the A-Disk type to fit over the wilwood big brake kit.

    Has anyone else done the same?

    thanks Kaan

    i have never hear of anyone having any issues fitting any type of wheel with the wilwood kits.

    the calliper protrudes 24mm from the rotor mounting face... so if you measure the hub depth and minus 24mm it will give you total calliper protrusion..

    i dont have an 86 hub with me to measure... i did however have an st141 hub.. and the calliper would sit 4mm or so inboard.. so no protrusion.. but just measure an 86 hub to confirm.

    Cheers

    15's I tried some 15x8 -4 superlites with 195/50 re002 on them but running adm setup. But my sis has wilwoods on her car and they're her wheels.

    I was thinking about getting the a-disk 15x9 -3 with similar tyres

    15's will bolt up both a and o disk.worst case would be 3mm spacer.

    i use o disk 14x8.5 -22 equip 03's, but i need an 8mm to clear the bolts. on the back of the rim.
