New pics with the slicks!

After tons of grinding on the calipers, I got the 15x10 Prostars to fit! I'm running the MT ET Streets 28 x 11.5 x 15. It got washed and detailed and then I took a few pics before all the light was gone. What do you think?

Beautiful car, the slicks nice back out there. I'm gonna guess you got the headlights off ebay, do you know where from though, they look awesome.

Looks great, but that worries me that you said you had to grind the calipers down to get them to fit. If they truly fit that tight, any minor bump at more than a few miles per hour could cause the brakes to contact the wheels damaging both. I wouldn't want to risk it. You could be going down the track, hit your brakes, have them make contact, and then you'll make contact with a wall.

its very common, you have to grind for prostars. Just the way it is. So far its ok. Clearance is fine all around with room to spare.

As long as the vertical/diameter clearance is good, I think you'd be okay. What did you grind? Just the outer part where it would make contact with the spokes?
