Why on earth would you want 14" wheels in the first place? Besides looking like cr@p, the tire selection is pitiful...

RODSRUS I have 10.98" Mopar rotors with 78-83 GM metric calipers on early Ford spindles and they clear 14x6 Real Wheels and WheelSmith 14x6 steel wheels by about 1/4-3/8" for what it is worth.

Thanks for the info. I'm glad I didn't buy the Wilwood calipers. I may end up having to go with 15 in rims and lower profile tires.

Irelands child If they are Wilwood brakes they wont fit!!! I have a bit less then .500 clearance on my fronts with 15" Billet Specialties 7" wide wheels and using the 11" Granada rotors

Not sure what 11" brakes you are running, but the GM A-body cars came with 11" rotors (actually, 10.75") and 14" wheels from the factory starting in 1967. I own several of them. The problem is that not all 14" wheels have the same contour on the backside. Some will clear, older ones (that originally came only on drum brake cars) will not.
