    Well, I just wanted to get some info before I put the rim on. I wouldnt wanna hassle with not being able to return the rim, if it was sratched, etc. trying to put it on.

    put it on without a tire. a tire won't effect the clearence. hand tighten the bolts.

    if the rotor isn't bigger than stock, i see no reason why it won't clear the caliper

    Well someone on the another board was telling me that the spoon caliper flex's outward when hard brake pressure is applied....I don't understand how a caliper could flex 3mm outward to where it would hit the rim. I wasn't even aware that calipers flex like that either.
