I'm trying to get an idea just how much room there is behind the spokes on the Motegi MR116's for brake calipers. I've scoured the internet without any luck.
I know Cornersonrails has these wheels so I PM'ed him but I'm not sure he checks in here very often. If you know someone that has them and is willing to lend a helping hand, I need three measurements that can be taken with the wheels on of off the car, plus a few details about the car to help me calculate what I need to know (I realize the measurements will vary with different offsets and widths but I can calculate everything I need from the following info):
1. the diameter, width, and offset of your wheel;
2. the year of your car;
3. any modifications to brakes;
4. thickness of wheel spacers (if any); and
5. the following measurements:
A. the distance between the back side of the spokes and the face of the rotor, 5-1/2" or so out from the center of the wheel;
B. the approx distance between the outer rim of the wheel (not including the tire) and the back side of the spokes (I realize the spokes make stick out beyond the outer edge of the rim, so if that's the case, then the thickness of the spokes is what I need, plus approx how far out the spokes stick out from the rim) ; and
C. the furthest outboard edge of the wheel (not including the tire) to the wheel mounting flange (not including the thickness of any wheel spacers if used).
Thanks in advance!
