    15" steelies with snow tyres over 308mm brakes?

    Will it work? Will they fit?

    I got some 15" steel wheels and going to get some snow tyres on them. Question is will they fit over my 308mm brakes? Does anyone know?

    If not I will do a trial fit.

    Cheers.

    No point on snow tyres by the time I sort a 2nd 16" steely, snow will have bloody melted. Grrr.

    Cheers everyone though.

    Marti, guessing the 17's are a min for the vxr setup as well?

    16's might mess up future developments.
