Brembo offset

Hey guys. Question for everyone who has a track pack or any mustang with brembos for that matter. I have a '13 track pack and I'm looking to get a new set of wheels. I know on my previous car I needed a +25 offset to clear that brembo kit. Anyone know what's needed to clear the brembos on the fronts of these cars? Looking to run a 10 wide so whatever may go with that. Haven't found much info online as far as people being one hundred percent positive. Thanks.

It's not offset that's the issue. It's the curvature of the spokes. If the spokes are concave in then it'll hit the brakes pretty much at whatever offset for example.

I've never heard that.. every wheel I've ever purchased on my previous cars with brembos every distributor and person I've ever met went off of offset when choosing a wheel with a proper clearance.

Offset controls how concave or not concave the wheel is.. So yeah I guess what your saying is right just different wording then how I put it. The offset is gonna control that curve the spoke has. I'm sure the company building the wheels can handle it since it's a custom wheel and made it clear it's for a big brake kit but I would just like to know myself to verify their numbers too.

The offset is not going to control how thick the spokes are. There's a Brembo guide you can print for the big brembos specifically b/c offset alone does not tell you what you need to know.

I've seen one before, it looks something like this: BBK Wheel Fitment Templates

Yeah I know it won't change spoke thickness but it'll change the curve of the way the wheel either goes towards or away from the hub. But I'll check out that guide. Thank you much appreciated

You have deep lipped designs that essentially pushes the spokes inward on a certain offset which makes it not clear the Brembos whereas another design pushes the spokes out further so it does clear.

Remember that the offset is based on the center hub not the spokes so offset isn't the only factor here.
