Default billet specialties street lites?

Was thinking about getting a set of the billet specialties street lites front runners for 69 camaro. Somebody told me today that they heard of people having problems when fitting them with wilwood front brakes? Any truth to this or do they just bolt right on?
Thanks

What about the rears? Looking at 15X10 wheel with 5.5 backspace. Wilwood part # 140-2115-B for the brakes. Heard minor grinding of the calipers. Thanks

Watch-out on the rears! While I like the Street Lites, they are a STUPID design! Shyt, even the 100 year old Weld Drag Lites had something good going for them. The Street Lites do not have the same inside diameter from the axle mounting flange to the outside of the wheel. For whatever reason they step-down as you go inwards (from the center of the car to the axle flange). So, if you try to use a larger backspace to tuck the wheel under the car instead of narrowing the axle, it ain't gonna happen! They are the only company I have seen that does this. I have several sets, never had any issues with them, just wish the ID was the same throughout. Bet they did it for strength, I see no other reason to leave the extra material there.
