    Default F56/F57 JCW Brake calliper set up

    Hi,

    Does anyone know if there is a difference in the brake calliper set up on both the F56 and F57 JCW? I have a colleague who canít fit a set of 18Ē cross spoke rims to his F57 unless he fits spaces to clear the JCW brake callipers yet heís been told these fit the F56 without spacers !

    Default F56/F57 JCW Brake calliper set up

    I donít know specifically if thereís a difference between the F56/7 brake setup, Iíd be surprised if there was though.

    I do know that with the Track Spoke wheels for the F56 thereís a set that does fit the JCW brakes and a set that doesnít. They look pretty similar except the JCW ones have more of a bow to allow space for the callipers. I wonder if thereís something similar here.

    Yeah I did reckon theyíd be the same set up as itís a mass production unit
    Ah that would make sense, it would need spacers to fit these then

    F56 and F57 JCW brakes are the same. There are 2 different types of the cross spoke, one for JCW and one for non JCW. The JCW wheels have a bow in them to cover the calipers
