    Can anyone measure from the center of the rear hub to the edge of the rear caliper? I'm trying to see what 17" I can get away with.

    I test fit a set of 17x7.5” wheels I had sitting around. They fit on the front. They would not clear the rear caliper.

    I do have something but I am pretty sure 17” wheels won’t fit. The rear rotor diameter is 0.6” larger than the front and the caliper design is larger than the front. My 18” wheels don’t have much clearance. Next time I have my wheels off I’ll measure it.
