    Hello. My 1964 Dodge custom 880 has 14" inch wheels and I don't want to upgrade to 15" wheels. Can anyone recommend front disc conversion kits that work with 14" wheels...most 1964 mopar kits requires at a minimum 15" wheels.

    Look around through the forums on this site, there is a LOT of info. on this conversion, and really good advice. The kits differ widely in terms of quality and stopping power. I THINK I read that Willwood has a kit for 14" wheels, but don't quote me on it. Good luck.

    If you want to keep your 14in hubcaps? You can use disc brake 14in rims from a 73 up dart or scamp with disc brakes. Or 14in rallye wheels with your hubcap

    Exactly lol. I really don't feel like looking for some original hubcaps for 15" wheel.

    Here is a link to a PST kit? What are your thoughts?

    I also want a kit that brake pads are easy available and has the ability to stop this boat.

    I was thinking I used the front disc's off of an A body when I did my 60 Dodge Dart back about 20 years ago. What ever I used, they work fine with the stock 14" wheels. If I remember correctly it was 78-80 Dodge Aspen. I'm sure there are others and quite possibly the aftermarket these days.

    I bought 1/4 inch wheel spacers, which pushed the rim out far enough where the rim didn’t rub the caliper.
