I don't believe so as all C4's came with a minimum 16 inch wheel to clear those brakes. And by the way....those C4 brakes work really well.

Theres a guy over on pro-touring.com (jasons68) he could not get them to fit. Guess it depends on the rim.

don't know how similar they are on the back side, but i had a set of 15X7 early 70's Z/28 wheels on the Nova with the C4 front brakes. i only had to grind the corners of the calipers down like 1/8" to get them to fit.

you don't plan sincerity.
you have to make it up on the spot.

wanna hear about 20 years ago when i was too smart to know any better?
