Default Caliper clearance help.

Just about ready to pull the plug on the Brembo upgrade but not sure if my 20" SRT reps will clear them. Some appear not to. I have tons of room now with mine and just wonder if anyone with the SRT reps from Factory reproductions can compare?

were your srt reps marketed to fit the SRTs? if so then they definitely fit. A lot of reps specifically say not for use on Jeep SRT vehicles.

seems they have a ton of skus for the same wheel, just to fit other vehicles properly.

Thats the problem, OEM Replicas is what I have and they do say not for brembo/big brake vehicles. But there is tons of clearance. Think I'm going to grab a caliper and check.

Wheel and tires may be for sale..

I'm confused.
You said, "Just about ready to pull the plug on the Brembo upgrade . . . " which to me means you are abandoning the idea of adding the Brembos.
Then you say, " . . . but not sure if my 20" SRT reps will clear them." which to me implies you are planning to implement the upgrade but are concerned about the fitment.
I was just wondering which it is because I'm jealous and have to settle for faux Brembos :-( by using red caliper covers. I hope you can go through with the upgrade, its gonna be a great look.

Yes they are 20 x9" and the 34.5 offset.

But this is what worries me.

If they wont fit under my rims I'm not in a position to buy new ones again. may grab one front caliper locally and see if it fits but the return fees are a issue.

Well I looked over the OE wheels website and everysinge wheel for Dodge/Jeep have the same disclaimer
"Will NOT fit SRT vehicles or vehicles with larger brake calipers like Brembo."

I emailed them and will call them tomorrow. It just doesn't make sense if they are copies of the original SRT wheel Even the new SRT spyder wheels say wont fit SRT.

no one mentioned this yet, but the HAT on the brembo rotors is lower profile then the stock durango ones, Your wheels will sit closer to the calipers then they currently do with the brembos.

When i put on my spider monkeys my car had some crazy wide stance that i disliked, with the brembos on, they got back closer to the car and less wide.

the brembo calipers are also MASSIVE. maybe try to find a srt to mount your wheel on hah.

So if i get this right the thickness of the rotor where the wheel studs come through is thicker on the OEM rotors? it can only be a minimal amount or the lug nuts would bottom out due to the amount of wheel stud that stick out.

didn't get any measurements, but it is a small amount, maybe 5mm, there was some other posting about this somewhere as well, but i forget where.

Would it be alright to assume if it's just a ~5mm interference, couldn't you run an appropriate wheel spacer to correct?

I'm hearing it the rotor hat that is shallower. more or less it positions the actual rotor disc farther out.

It could not be or the Caliper Mount would not line up.
