What year CV? If you are talking about the '03-'11 you are required to run 16" not 17" & you may be able to get 15" custom built to clear the calipers. The other option that pops out right away is use a different IFS. The 12" dual piston caliper front brakes are great! I would rather have too much stopping power than not enough.

ive never really looked into a smaller brake setup for the panther IFS, althow Im sure something is possible you would have to figure out a caliper bracket that would work out on that setup or have one machined.

But with that being said if its the classic 15 wheel look is what you want this is truely the wrong IFS for you. other than the big brakes this front end is very wide compared to your stock setup and if you were to put stock offset wheels on it or anything close they would stick way outside the fenders. you would have to run a modern wheel that tucks the tire in more, which is available in a steel wheel. some of the earlier CVs had 16 steelies that had a lip for hubcaps and still had a decent offset for the panther.
