Default 15's to clear stock brakes?

i know that the 3rd gen firebird fans will clear stock breaks, but they are only 7inches wide and i would like to find an option that won't pinch the tire and make it taller.
any suggestions?

-Thanks

Call me stupid but I didn't understand what you were asking too much, you're trying to put 15's on a LS1 stock front brake system?

Run bogarts or another rim with a little caliper grinding and spacer, most people run a 5/16". Some rims require less grinding than others.

I think some rims will actually fit without grinding, some of the bogarts, ask around I am not 100% sure.

i want to clear the factory rear brakes. for purposes of the project in question, there will be no grinding of anything. looking for 15 inch wheel, preferably a 15x8, that can be bolted right on with just a small spacer or nothing.

15x7.5 Convo Pros.

The 15x9 (6.5) that we helped Centerline prototype would look better but you'll have to do a little grinding not much.

I think pretty much any Centerline wheel will fit. I run Warriors and never had to grind, also had some Auto Drags with no problems. I run 8.5s in the back.
