Wish I could drive her instead of waiting 4 more months. It makes the stock brembos look not that appealing… Let's start with the finished product Series of close up of rears, to show stance and fit… love it. Now the fronts… including stance, and how they clear the brembos Then I took a shot with the flash… I liked the dark theme…
So much liked it. My brembo wheels look so small now.....

Here's a fair question to those of you out there: If you are running 20" tires, and 305 wide, and are lowered, do you encounter any rubbing issues at all? What is your rear offset?

I will confirm again with my vendor today... I know I asked that before but now you guys are making me double check. Lol

I had a Shelby with 20x11 with 315/35 drag radials and lowered and no rubbing. The offset was 58 or 59 for the Steeda Spyders I had on that car.

Thought I'd let you know that Stage 3 Motorsports can get the 14" Baer rear rotors in "smooth" (no dimples, no slots) they just don't have them on there website. The cost is the same and they would not be an exact match to the front rotors since there two piece, but the only real visible difference is the two piece have the bolts or what ever you want to call them.

This is a picture of the Brembro 14" front rotors

These are the Baer 14" rear rotors (imagine them smooth)

Thank you. That looks sweet. Yes I confirmed with my vendor that they've been selling this setup for years... They verify what type of springs the customer has before recommending a rim/tire. So I should have no rubbing. The stock bump stop (along with k springs) should prevent any rubbing whatsoever. Folks that do have some rubbing with 20s and 305s must have either springs that are too radical a drop, the wrong offset, or a combination of both.

Might as well save money and get the rear brakes from the '13 GT500. that way you just need the rotors and brackets.

Would those fit on my 12, Danielle? I know for sure it should clear the Milans?

Same brakes, same calipers, same mounting, just 1" larger. You'd be able to tell me better than I could tell you.

I was worried about the mounting... If same, then 1" larger should fit

I like! That color looks so good on that red and I think people are starting to realize because I'm seeing it more and more

Man that looks killer.
No substitute for coil overs, that for sure. What brand did you go with?

Thanks, I actually decided to venture out from the normal on those and bought a cheap set knowing I could send them back.... I bought them from CXRacing.

In all honesty, they seem very well built and ride like stock when adjusted. I will note that I hardly drive my car as is, but when I do.... I'm not easy on it at all. I have probably under a 1,000 miles on everything I have put on, but other than a few adjustments in ride height I have had absolutely no problems from them.

They're basically a BCRacing coil over copy from everything I see(shocks included). Granted, when I installed these, I replaced just about everything underneath at the same time so.... It could be a number of things that helped, but needless to say they work for everything I need.

I included the few pictures I took when I received them.

I've heard of BCRacing before. I think the guys with the EVO's/Subies use those when they auto-x.
Car looks great and I bet she handles really well.

Yeah, I did a lot of forum searching on those and then saw a few mention of these with reviews from some of the forums and figured I would just give them a shot. Car handles great, I actually enjoy driving it more now. A lot more predictable and when traction is in question the car just glides forward. Doesn't really kick out or anything on me.

Perfect and gorgeous. What's the offset of the rear wheels? If you say +42 I'll be happy.

Thanks! Offset for the rear is +45 on a 20/10.5 wheel. I personally would like to have a +50 or +55. These sit extremely flush. With a square tire a +42 20/10.5 might work. I wish I had test fitted the wheels before mounting the tire to see exactly how flushed these are. Offset will look different per width of rim though.

What are you looking to go with?
