Is is physically possible to put high performance brakes or modify brembos to be able to fit under the 17 inch factory steel wheel on a Ford Territory ? Doing a sleeper project and keeping the 17 inch steelies is a must

Almost anything can be possible but it means redesigning and possibly using a lower profile caliper and a large internal dia 17" rim.

I believe that they did a floating rotor variation. I wasn't happy with the likelihood of inherent noise associated with that design. I ended up using a 360 mm rotor and hat from an Alcon kit. I heard to modify the caliper bracket to suit the reduced offset of the rotor.

Niche Essen wheels - 20 x 9 +35, 20 x 10 +40

Rears clear the Brembo 4 pots - but because of the concave - only by 3-4mm's.

Same sizes as yours mate - 245/35/20 and 275/30/20's. Tyres were Kumho PS71's. Got them for a good price - but am not liking them at all.

They're a skinnier tire than the Pirelli Dragon Sports and don't hold their lateral grip anywhere as good. Even with your current tread on the Pirelli's they are better than my Kumho's brand new.

Will try to go back to the Pirelli's next time and get 285's on rears.

Thanks.
I've had Kumhos on the T3, good priced tyre but agree not as good as I'd wish grip wise.
Now have Conti 275's much better.
Mentioning the Dragons on the tsw's even with the tread at its last legs I'm surprised by the grip I can feel.
I'll be amazed once I put on new treads and I'm leaning towards the Michys everyone raves about and consider 285's as well.

Anyone know what offset in front runners clear 6 pot brembos?
And also, I was reading somewhere that the Mustang GT500 is similar to Falcon in brake sizes - can someone please confirm?

What

6 pot Brembos are serious brakes.

To be of any use they need serious tyres or they are pointless.

Front runners do not support serious tyres, they are a joke.

If you're running front runners, use a parachute to slow down
