    Cleveland Wheels with Grove brakes?

    Does anyone know if these two are compatible? Thanks!

    Should be. Airframes wheels fit up with Cleveland and Groves equally well.

    Not sure about the legality of mixing and matching, but the dimensions all match. My STC brakes on the J-3 are identical to the Decathlon Clevelands. Torque plates and discs are slightly different, but the caliper is a match - same for Mooneys and Cherokees.

    No, Bushwheels reverse engineered Cleveland and they are the same and approved as replacements. Grove are not the same but great brakes.

    I know ABW wheels and rotors work just fine with Grove brakes. That’s what my Cub has. I’ve also used ABW wheels with Cleveland brakes. I figure that demonstrates compatibility.

    I guess what I am saying is you can't take a Grove piston and replace a Bushwheel/Cleveland piston. Also Grove is not PMA'd as replacement parts on a Bushwheel or Cleveland.
