    Andy, do you use the stock eurosport 14" rims with those van brakes?

    The 6000 STE rear disc brakes just barely clear a 14" wheel, so nothing bigger would fit. The Uplander brakes need a 16" wheel.

    Nope, they don't fit the front brakes either. It's 15" minimum up front. I'm not happy that I can't run my early Eurosport mags, but the braking improvement is worth it.
