Video: How to Check Big Brake Kit Wheel Clearance


Considering a BBK, but unsure if your wheels will clear without a spacer? In this video we outline how to use our downloadable wheel fitment templates to check fitment. Our AP Racing by Essex Brake Kits offer ample clearance for many of the popular road and track wheel options on the market, and we even list confirmed fitments on our product pages when possible. However, we go one step further and provide PDF templates with the exact dimensions needed for each brake kit we offer, so you can physically confirm before making a purchase.
