So you've fitted up some flash 20" wheels and realized the brakes look really tiny now?

Not to worry, KiDo Racing now has absolutely MASSIVE 405x32mm rotors designed to fill the back of your 20" rims. Of course these match with our 8 pot calipers. Prices & pictures coming.

Here is a rule of thumb that seems to work for checking clearance:

Measure 95mm from the inside edge (the side away from the wheel) of your standard rotor out towards the wheel spokes.
Divide the KiDo rotor diameter by 2 to get the radius. Add 15mm to that figure.
Measure from the hub centre to the figure derived above. At that distance from the hub, and 95mm out from the back of the standard rotor is the point your wheels need to clear.

Hope that helps.

Bryce

Translation?
If KiDo rotor is 402mm x 32mm, then 201mm + 15mm = 216mm radius to clear caliper
Measure 216mm radius from centre of hub
If the factory rotor was larger diameter, you need to make sure the distance from inside edge of factory rotor to the inside edge of the wheel spoke(ie thickness of rotor + distance from rotor to wheel spoke) is less than 95mm at 216mm from hub centre(not the factory brake rotor hub centre)

ie: If the wheels concave in near the outer edge of the wheel, chances of fitting are slim.
