What wheel fits C5 brakes

Looking to see what people are running with C5 brake conversion on front? Have stock height spindle and checking for ideas on running a 17" wheel on front. What do you have back spacing width tire size ?

Re: What wheel fits C5 brakes

Backspacing is one part but the main reason some wheels don't fit with them ( like TT2's) is the spoke design. Over at www.kore3.com, there is a downloadable template. I also have 17 inch Budnik Famosas but every wheel is different. What wheel do you have in mind?

You will probably have to run a spacer for them to work, searching around online most say either a 1/8 or 1/4 one. Don't know how that will affect your fitment with additional backspacing (will push wheel out more). Hope this helps.
