So I had another post but deleted it as I encountered new problems. So I had mounted the superatv front brake disc conversion on my 1999 300fw. It went on easily and looked great. Until I went to mount my rims and tires which was tonight. Then with some research it seems like this is a common problem which is the brake line rubs the damm rim before full lock. How is this not mentioned in the instructions. It gives a generic idea about brake line routing but there is no way this will work without rubbing the rim. The only thing I could come up with was rotating the mounting brackets to the front and putting the calipers on the front to accommodate stock brake line routing. With the amount of guys running the superatv kit surely someone else has encountered this? Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks

12 inch rims with correct offset. They are itp delta steels.

I know it's the kit but I was just looking for some input from people who run the super atv kit to see some solutions people have done. In my opinion it's because of where they put the bleeder. It restricts the brake line from being rotated inboard more.

For every one using the super atv disc conversion on the 300's what offset rims are you using up front?

My front offset is 5+2.... now if it was a 4+3 it would be OK but the delta steel wheels are 5+2 for the 300
