I think basically all current Shimano series brakes are like this. At least on mine, in the front a tire would hit the fork before the brakes and in the back, it's about a tie between the caliper and...

If I'm not mistaken those are known to run big, they might be more like true 30s. Looking at mine, if I have an issue it will be with the fork crown before the brakes (but you may have different...

Ah good to know. Thanks! Yes I think these take to modern parts very well. I was just examining tire clearance yesterday and I think 28s will fit for my next pair of tires (have 25s on there now).

I have an older bike set up with new 8-speed Claris R2000 shifters, a new Sora R3000 front derailleur, a new 9-speed chain, old 6/7 speed cranks, and an old 8-speed RD. The rear shifting is great....
