I am planning on converting my ST to the RS Brembo front brakes. Does anyone know if I will have any clearance issues with the 19" rims and the Brembo's ?

Thanks!

The only thing I'd be worried about is the clearance around the face. Which wheels are you referring to?
Any pics?
What are the wheel specs.

Looking at the specs compared to my current wheels, it looks like they'll clear the bowls fine.
@Joe R red14st2 hows the clearance on the caliper face? (In between the spokes and caliper)

Id suggest go straight for those wheels that fits RS. Usually its the caliper face that can not be cleared due to not enough offset
Yeah I have the rims already. I did see that these have a 50mm offset and the RS wheels have a 55mm offset. I think worst case I will have to space them with a 5mm spacer.

If you really want those. You can shop around for a better price than CJ.
Actually, my dude... I'd like to see a better price than CJ's, have not found anyone close really (especially with free shipping). Less than $140 a wheel, each with new tpms & Ford Performance wheels caps (which are about $160 to purchase alone)... fantastic deal no matter how you look at it. Plus, I got a 25% military discount on Eagle 235-35 Exhilarate's from Goodyear - delivered and installed for $725. I am very excited to see how much different my Magnetic Metallic Beast looks with these wheels. Snowflakes are getting tired :)Cannot wait for everything to get here.

yup I am waiting for the salt to get off the road and then I can get my Congenital DWS 06's mounted and installed. Come on spring !
Nice. I have never had ‘congenital’ tires lol. I looked hard at the DWS’s, too. Frankly, these will be my last set of “performance” all seasons. I plan on doing some cool sh*t with the stock wheels for the colder months in NJ, and keeping Summer’s on the ford perf 10 spokes. It’s time, really. F, I may even paint the 10 spokes if I don’t like the matte magnetic wheels on magnetic metallic paint scheme. Have fun, kids

Philly skyline is my back yard view. Not too much snow and ice. I’ve enjoyed the decent all-seasons I’ve used since new in 16’. Have never owned summer rubber and am looking forward to trying them in a couple years when I destroy the new Exhilarates! Oh, I gotta ask… Tesla 80… the band, or the man himself? Or, gulp, the 🚗 ?! I jest, really dig the first two, and the car ain’t too half bad either lol. And 1980 was a decent year, first one I really remember 🤩

LOL Tesla as the inventor and 80 as in 1980 from when I was born. Yeah I am out north west of Carslile Pa up in the mountains. We did not get a lot of snow but I am down in a valley and if we get 1" of snow it drifts like crazy on the roads.
