Default Rear disc brakes

I found the rims I wanna run on my Bug, but I'm not sure if they're gonna fit with the disc brakes I wanna use. My plan is to run 4 wheel discs with a Chevy 4.75" bolt pattern to run Rocket wheels.

But they are a soft lip with only 6.35" to the drop center. Is there anyone or there running rear discs that can tell me how much room they take up? I had a setup on my old Manx that cleared 14" steel wheels, but I'd rather not guess at it.

My rear discs fit right inside the stock wheels as well as my knockoff EMPI 8 spokes.

Yoc need to deside which rear disc set up. There are several with different calipers and different brackets.

Yeah. Last time I bought brakes, there weren't so many options.
