    So to clarify, the Chrome ssv rims don't fit, but the chrome redline rims will?

    Yeah that's what I believe. Redline's have the 4 piston Brembo fronts so their wheels will obviously clear coming from factory.

    Redline wheels clear, SSV won't.

    None of the SSV's have Crome rims. To clear the Brembo brakes you need SSV Redline or HSV wheels.

    Is that a staggered fit? I've read the 9.5" rears don't clear HSV brakes, but haven't heard any reports of Brembos.

    Is the problem in clearance due the diameter or thickness?
