Wheel to Caliper Clearance of Big Brake Kits:
In many cases big brake kits will not fit under stock wheels. Most 17" wheels will clear the outer diameter of the caliper of brake kits with 328 and 332mm rotors, while an 18" wheel is typically required for 355mm kits. However, some 17" wheels will clear 355mm kits. The more critical clearance is between the back of the wheel spokes to the outer face of the caliper. Do not assume an 18, 19 or even 20+ inch wheel will clear the outer face of the caliper. Templates and measurements are available to help customers determine wheel fitment, and we can tell you about wheel combinations we've successfully used. Some wheel manufacturers can build a wheel for you that takes into account the dimensions of your big brake kit.
Final fitment of big brakes, however, is the sole responsibility of the customer.
Wheel spacers can provide extra clearance to the outer face of the caliper. This will also space out the entire wheel, widening the track width of the vehicle. Basic suspension settings will generally not be adversely affected by a slight widening (5-15mm per side) of the track. Fender clearances should be checked on lowered cars, and longer lug studs or wheel bolts will be required.
It is the sole responsibility of the customer to insure wheel spacers are properly specified and installed.
The most common cause of brake vibration is thickness variations on the rotor. As delivered, kits from StopTech have typical rotor thickness variation within 0.0003". Actual rotor thickness variation will never change, though pad material may be deposited unevenly on one or more spots of the rotor face. Under extreme conditions, any rotor will suffer uneven pad deposition due to improper bed-in or exceeding the pad's Maximum Operating Temperature (MOT). This deposited material may induce a vibration, and if severe enough, can only be cured by replacing the rotor. Not following proper break-in procedures for the rotor and pads, or using street pads on the track are the most common causes of brake vibration. Leaving a foot on the brake pedal when the brakes are hot may also cause pad deposits on the rotor. For best results, follow these guidelines when installing new pads, rotors, or big brake kits: Proper Bedding Procedure
Zeckhausen Racing is not liable for vibrations caused by extreme usage or improper break-in procedures.
Certain brake pad compounds make more noise than others. Proper anti-squeal shim plates between the caliper pistons and backing plate of the pad may help reduce the problem. Anti-squeal lubricants are also available to reduce or eliminate the noise. The reality is, some performance pads are more prone to brake squeal than others. And full race pads, when used on the street, may squeal like an old school bus.
Zeckhausen Racing is not liable for any squeal related problems due to pad selection.
