Default All Wheel & Brake Caliper combo & fitment concerns come here.

Primarily this thread was intended for the CTS-V style brakes and wheel fitment concerns but I decided that people wanting other Brake Calipers (5th Gen Camaro SS, Z06 Brakes, aftermarket, ect) would also have questions, concerns and the like so here's what I would like to do.

I'm requesting for this thread to enlisted in the stickies section and users who have performed these conversions could post the following information in this post to help and make more clear what wheel combinations work and do not work for whichever specific brake upgrade they performed. If you could post with the following template below it would be greatly appreciated. It's mainly to help users decide if a certain wheel combination wheel work or if they will need spacers or even longer studs ect..

Note that the 4 Piston and 6 Piston CTS-V have almost the same clearances with the 6 Piston being slightly wider than the 4 Piston needing slightly more clearance but not by enough to make a huge difference between the two so whatever will work on the 4 Pistons will likely also work on the 6 Piston variants just leaving you with slightly less space.

This thread is for ALL Brake Caliper and wheel fitment concerns, not just limited to the CTS-V brake upgrade.

How about clearance for a C5 setup?
I know they will clear my stock 17", but I'll be looking to buy a drag setup soon (slicks n skinnies, would like to go 15" all around), and I would like to know the minimum wheel size I would have to run up front....
Thanks for any input!
