Anybody Know If 2007-09 Wheels Will Fit On This Car?


Recommended Posts

I'm going to the track this weekend and was going to put my 09' gt500 wheels / nt01 tires on my car. I'm assuming they will fit. I guess I will find out tomorrow night. any one with experience with this?

 

I have a full set of '08-'09 18" KR wheels on my 2010, no problem at all.

 

AND I have the Shelby big brakes on it so larger than stock.

I don't think the wheels will clear the 6 piston Brembos.

 

All the ads for them say "Fits M-2300-S Brembo brake kit" which is the 14" Brembo package, but they say nothing about whether they will clear the M-2300-T which is the later 15" 6 piston Brembo package. I know my 14" rotors are pretty tight inside my factory 2009 wheels, especially once you put wheel weights in there.

 

The M-2300-T brake kits comes with this advisory:

 

  • Requires Ford Racing wheels M-1007-DC199B, M-1007-SA199, M-1007-DC199LGB, M-1007-SA1995MB or wheel kits M-1007KIT-DC19910LGB, M-1007KIT-DC199B, M-1007KIT-DC199CH, M-1007KIT-DC199LGB,M-1007KIT-SA199, M-1007KIT-SA19910 or equivalent for caliper clearance.
  • Kit also clears track use only wheels, M-1007-R1895, M-1007-R1810 and M-1007-R1895S 18" Mustang Ford Racing/BBS race wheel

Not listed in there are the 07-09 wheels which are M-1007-S1895. The way Ford does their wheel part numbers, the first two numbers in the last segment of the wheel is the wheel size, in this case 18" for the M-1007-S1895. They only list the BBS race wheel in 18" as clearing the 6 piston Brembos. All the other wheels reccomended are 19".

I don't see why not, they clear the 6-piston Shelby/Baers.

 

Front and rear.

They don't fit. I tried to put them on last night. The brembos are too big. No, the wheels are too small! Brakes can never be too big, right?!

 

The interior diameter of the stock 09' wheels are approx 17-3/4". The 13' front wheel interior diameter is about 18-3/4". The outside of the brake calipers rubbed the inside of the wheel to the point where the wheel wouldn't even sit properly. Oh well. Looks like I'm selling some wheels / nittos.

The 6 piston Baer/Shelby brakes are smaller than the 13/14 6 piston Brembos by enough to make a difference. I've even heard that some people with "thick" sticky wheel weights were running into issues with the Baer brakes on 18" wheels.
