It depends how often you are going to the track and doing other racing events. For me, the great pad choice and ease of changing them on the Wilwood kit is fantastic. With the 11.75" kit, I can run...

Are you talking about the 17"s or the 15"s in the last picture? Yeah, the 225/45/15s I run on the track are a bit taller looking in sidewall, but that's because I'm running a 15x7 wheel right now. I...
