No worries, I will place an order for you and ship them back home..... :wink:

These rims fit really well, no clearence issues and are super light weight.

We tried to get the tyres today but they had not arrived yet, maybe tomorrow we will have more pic's.

The 4 pot Wilwoods and 21mm wide rotors are kick ass on the car, we just put a nice set of Performance friction race pads to finish them off, awesome!!!!.

I have a set ready to post over for you Sam :D .

Looks awesome, plus I'd be taking it extra careful over bumps until you pump those guards. :P

How do you propose to turn corners with 8" wide tyres ? :twisted:

And yes pumped guards and flares a must!

But that looks sexual! =P~

prediction... front bumper car will be sporting less weight soon.


out of interest, what is the offset on those rims. and are what are the willwood brakes part numbers you used and did you have to custom make the brackets? Nice combination for track, I dont think fade will be a problem.
