rotors and brake pads

I am looking at buying drilled rotors and new pads for my 2011 SS. Does anyone know if they would be the same width as the stock. I was hoping the rotors and pads would be a little thinner so I would have a little more clearance between the spokes on my new wheels and the brembo calipers. Right now in the back I have 1 credit card width. Any suggestions besides a 3 mm spacer?

The calipers are fixed in place by two bolts in the back. Even if the rotors and pads were to be thinner your caliper would not move, you would just have the pistons extend further to make contact.

A spacer is really the best way to go. 3mm is safe. Typically rotors are the same width as stock and the hat would actually have to be thicker to do what you are looking for. Just get some spacers and be done with it.

Best regards,

I have a new set of spacers I ordered and decided not to use.
