Saleen wheel spoke clearance

Is there anyone out there that has the Saleen style wheels in 17" x 9 and 10.5 that is willing to measure spoke to mounting face dimensions for me? I am looking to see if I think they will clear the calipers I have mounted on my car. It may even be easy to measure the offset of the front face of the rotor hat to the rotor pad surface then measure from the rotor pad surface to the wheel spoke with the wheels still on the car.

Any help is appreciated. Someone did do this for me on the FR500 wheels in the past and it looks as though those clear, however, many people said the FR500s pretty much fit over any brake.

I have attached a photo of the wheel in question as well as the brakes.

Thanks.

You might get more people looking at your post if you use the correct name/spelling...

Not bashing or anything, but some might see the current spelling and not really know what you are referring to. The correct spelling is Saleen...

Also, it might help to either state what calipers/brake kit your Roadster is using or post photos of your setup as well.

HTH!

Thanks Mark. Must have had one of those moments.

I added some photos of the brakes to the original post. The reason I didn't mention the brakes originally is because I am certain nobody else is using them and, therefore, it wouldn't really be value added. They are Lexus LS430 brake calipers on all four corners with 06 gt front rotors and 04 cobra rear rotors. In the end the adaptation may not be worth the effort but I am still powering through. They are all adapted, I just need to make sure which wheels will fit.

The original reason for going with these brakes is because they seem to be a really nice caliper for the price and I really don't like the idea of sliding calipers on the cobra. I have no doubt that the sliding mustang calipers do a great job for people but I think these add a little bit from the looks stand point (after I clean them up) as well as hopefully some braking performance. They are a monoblock aluminum caliper. Four piston in the front and two piston in the rear. I have adapted the fronts to another car that I have and they have been great.

I plan to run a pinion brake with an electric Tesla parking brake caliper.

Oh wow, that's like the big-old school Wilwoods...

You might want to ping Gordon Levy, as he really knows a lot about the various Wilwood setups and can possibly help after you provide a measurement or two off of the face of the rotor to the caliper face, etc.

Good luck with it!
