Ford use a wacky specification for the brake sizes that is not the actual size of the rotors but the minimum wheel size for clearance on the GT / GTPE it has 19" so a 19" should in theory clear however a lot of that success will depend on the actual wheel design chosen and getting the correct offset. Some wheel designs don't give a lot of clearance and would have trouble clearing a disc and caliper combination the size of a drinks coaster without needing to use a ridiculous offset.Thanks for posting these details. Wondering your thoughts on if you think 19” wheels will clear the brake calipers after you have played with these during your wheel project. My GTPE is due to be delivered to me in Anchorage ( eta is (10/27) about the time we normally have our permanent winter snow on the ground. I would really like to be able to down size the wheels for winter and need to get them ordered ASAP so they get here in time.
Maybe also worth trying to get confirmation from Ford but with the 19" minium you would think that internally they would have made sure that the 19" premium wheel would fit.
