    Hey man,

    I wanted to reach out for some advice in response to the post you had about your wheel/tire set up.

    I have a 68 chevelle and I'm ready to get the SS 396 style wheels from Wheel Vintique or wherever else I can find them! My issue is, I put disc brakes (with 11" rotors) on the front and they measure 13.5" with the caliper. Wheel Vintique says the inside diameter of the 15" SS 396 style wheel is 12.65 inches.

    I want those wheels and am willing to buy new brakes if that's what it takes. I think I'm just lacking the knowledge to make it work.

    Got any suggestions?

    Thank you!
