What, exactly, is the difference between 355 challenge brakes and regular 355 brakes?
The calipers are bigger
The rotors are larger
From this thread under Philippe's post:
Even though they're on a 348, this is a photo of the 355 Challenge set-up complete with screw-in lug studs and aluminum nuts to replace the lug bolts.
FWIW, Dave, if you're thinking about upgrading your braking system, be advised that stock 355 wheels will NOT clear the Challenge brake setup.
Dennis, I am almost 100% sure that the Challenge brake set up can accomodate 355 stock wheels (surely not 348 stock wheels). My 348 is equipped with the full 355 Challenge brake set up and 355 Challenge Speedline wheels. I have somewhere a set of 355 stock wheels and will make the check. I will let you know. Philippe
I've already checked. Stock 355 wheels definitely don't clear the CH brakes (not on a 355 anyway)
No, they don't fit Challenge brakes, spoke hit calipers.
So its the spokes that interfere, not the internal diameter of the wheel?
Second question, is there an aftermarket 18" wheel that will clear or must one go to 19" wheels?
Challenge Speedline wheel clears (it's 18"). This is the Challenge package, no need for 19's.
Confirmed! 355 stock wheels does not accomodate challenge brakes without spacers. By the way if someone is interested in my set of 355 stock wheels, send me an e-mail. Philippe.
