My new R calipers

Ordered a set of R calipers for my car and our parts dept got them in today.

Wow are they massive. Sure we know they are large on the car but in your hand .... they are mammoth.

That and the R steering wheel was ordered and will go on sometime in the next week or so

Re: My new R calipers

Does the 350 have nice looking calipers on the rear or is it like the 500 and has small cheap looking rears?

Re: My new R calipers

Going to look great Don. Have you put any thought into the Project 6GR wheels that are built to mimic the 7 spoke concave design of the GT350R wheels without the crazy carbon fiber costs? I think they'd look great on your car and give more room for those new big red calipers to poke through. Available in gunmetal, silver, black, or custom finishes.

Re: My new R calipers

yes i have ..... and you have to get the larger rims to accomodate the GT350R Mich track tires

Though I dont track the car those tires are super sticky and i want to put a set on but you need a wider rim ..... problem is I dont have another blower to sell you ..... the total set up rims and tires would probably run $3200+/-
