    Does anyone know if the 13 inch rotors and cobra calipers would fit on 16 inch wheels? I guessing they will not.

    I plan on getting 18" wheels later, but I have the cobra conversion kit now and was wanting to put it on. I was wondering if anybody was able to run cobra brakes on a 16" wheel. I have seen guys running the welds on cobra brakes before. And I think the sn95 cobras came with a 16" donut tire

    I think it may be the back spacing that causes this issue but I'm sure they won't clear stock 16" inch rims.

    The Cobra comes with a 17" spare, i had to get one when i did the 13" brake swap. I really don't think you will fit 16" wheels on either. You can fit the 17" wheels and they can be found cheap if your budget is tight.
