Can 14" brakes fit under 18" wheels?

Yes. I saw some Porsche 15 inch rotors with 8 piston calipers on Ebay a while back and they claimed that set up would clear 18's.

The answer is ... it depends. The wheel has to have enough spoke and barrel clearance, and caliper size will be a factor too. The Ford GT and the Shelby GT 500 both have 14" front rotors with Brembo calipers (the GT calipers have a bulkier housing), and they use 18" front wheels.

What brakes and wheels are you considering?

Not sure about the wheels yet, but I'm looking at using Wilwood 6 piston calipers and 14" rotors for the front.

I'm still trying to figure out how to make a 4 piston in the back and maintain a parking brake. Was thinking about trying to see if I could get one off of a Jag or a car like that.
