Wheel X Factor
No, we're not talking about a talent tv show. When talking about wheels, 'x-factor' is basically a measure of how much clearance there is behind the face of the wheel for your vehicle's brake system.
X-factor is a measurement of how far past the mounting hub of the wheel that the brake caliper is, and at what radius the high point is. In some situations, an aftermarket or upgraded brake kit can protrude further than stock and interfere with the spokes on an aftermarket wheel.
Fortunately, many big brake kits will come with a printable template that you can test fit inside a wheel to ensure you have enough clearance.
In most cases, our wheels have enough x-factor clearance to suit just about every application, but if you have any doubts, please contact our sales support team or email us to find out more.
