You would have to ditch your 15's and go 17's

16's would be too small too? Oh well... By the time I'd be able to afford them, I'd probably be looking at some 17" OZ Futuras or the like anyways.

It's an AP brake setup, they make a ton of parts - surely it can't be too hard to comb their catalog and assemble the misc. parts to make the same thing without the swanky logos?

90% of the wow factor is the fact that you've somehow found a rare, hard to find, official set of JCC brakes. An AP brake kit really isn't that cool by itself.

Hence why I encouraged Puma to do the exploring himself. There's nothing cool about finding a pair if someone else is spoon feeding you all the info. A large part of it is the journey/search/bartering.

Definitely 17s or better, Puma. They look like they would require some serious clearance so you may be limited even then,

The "wow" factor is nice, but the engineering of these pieces and weight savings is unreal. Those hats weigh a good bit less than the r56s ones I have on now. If you could get the parts without the logos (at a significant $ savings) I be on it in a minute, .

The only reason I can access them is I know somebody, who knows somebody, who knows somebody's 2nd cousin twice removed, that has a hook up with a Challenge car .

AP already had a very good kit for the mini. Haven't had them side by side, but it's probably very close if not the same. They aren't cheap either.
