I was just informed that 15 inch skinnies will fit on a cobra/bullitt 13.5 front brake with just a 5/8 spacer. The person said he did know grinding what so ever to clear the caliper. Has anybody here done this?

5/8 is too thin, you will need about 13/16" spacer, or a 7/16 and 5/16" to clear it. I tried a 5/8" and 1 cleared and the other side didn't, weird. I added a 3/16" spacer to the 5/8" and it cleared. They stick out like a mofo though.

You will also NEED 3" or 3.5" long studs.

Thanks James for the reply. When you say they stick way out how bad is it. Do you have any picks. Also how much longer will the studs have to be.

Thanks again

On my cobra with 15" Weld Pro-stars and 13/16" worth of spacers on MT ET FRONT 27.5x4.5x15 tires the sidewall of the tire stick out just a bit, maybe a 1/4 to 3/8" from the fenderwell. The tread of the tire is tucked in, but the sidewall stick out.

I have 3" studs and just barely thread all the way into the lug nut all the way.
