As long as they are steel wheels you should be fine, I’ll assume that you made sure the brake kit fits your machine already otherwise.

The aluminum rims are thicker, therefore the ID of the wheel is smaller. There is a slight interference with the calliper for the disk brakes. I wouldn’t doubt you could shave some material off the calliper and make it work, but that’s not technically by the book lol

Grinding on the caliper is by the book now , at least the instruction booklet that comes with new SuperATV kits , which says to grind the corner of the caliper with aluminum rims

I use 1 inch wheel spacers on all of my disc conversions , with spacers it is no problem

I don't know what atv you have ............... from personal experiences , I know a 1 inch wheel spacer works with aluminum rims and a SuperATV disc kit on a 1st , 2nd or 3rd TRX300 2wd or 4wd , or 1st or 2nd gen TRX450S or FM
