Back on the road in Orlando

Hello, finally got my 69 Camaro back on the road after sitting for 10-12 years. I'm still working on some things. I could use some help. I want to do 4 wheel disc brakes however I like the smaller 15" wheels. Will I still be able to use a 12" rotor with a 15" wheel or do I need to go to a 17" wheel?

Not sure if this will answer your question, but I installed the USBC front disc brake kit 7 years ago from NPD. 15" rims fit over the rotors and calipers no problem.

Re: Back on the road in Orlando

Wilwood makes a 12.19" front kit that will not fit MOST 15" wheels on the front. Most 15" wheels will have to use the 11" front kit. On the rear the 12.19 kit will fit most applications because the caliper is off set to the inside enough to clear the wheels. We are in Apopka if you want to drop by we could pull your specific wheel and measure. We have 1/2 a dozen different Wilwood kits and a few other brands installed at the shop.
