    It's about 11" big brake kit from Wilwood (pn 140-8695) for civics with 240mm rotors

    Does anybody have this kit installed under 15" rims or have confirmed information that is possible ?

    Thanks...

    thats the 11" FB kit? looks kinda small. i have 10.2" brakes on the crx with fat 5's and the spacing from rotor to wheel looks identical...

    also he has the wilwood kit, not the fastbrakes kit, if it matters...

    This is 11" under 15" rims ? That is great, there is plenty of space between rim and caliper...

    Hmm, i didn't know Wilwood was now making an 11" kit? I'll have to check that out. :) I had the 13" kit which just barely fit under 16's.

    Ah, I thought the fast brakes kit was the only one. :) Although, when I got my kit that was like 5 years ago, lol. I wish they had something to use the OE rotor, and not their rotor. I love paying $13.99 per rotor.
