Default Can I used 1.8 brakes with 14inch rims

OK. So i have all the stuff to convert my 90 to the larger 1.8 brakes/diff rear half shafts.
But the tires on my 14inch rims are new.

Can I swap over and still run the 14inch rims?

Thanks

Brian

ps. I did search 1.8 14 inch rims and found nothing on here.

Yup, just about as big as you can go with a daisy wheel
