BUMP to see if you're ever planning on updating the pictures.

If you are going to race the car, then 17" wheels give you better speed/handling due to more rubber and lighter. The really big brake kits only fit under 19" wheels, which aren't used for racing, which means, you are spending $3500 for looks. In reading about brakes, it appears the OEMs are more than enough for daily driving, and will work for some race outings without brake fade. Personally, I opted for OEM sized dimpled and slotted rotors, RedStuff brake pads, Stainless Steel Braided brake lines, and Painted Calipers. Once again, flaming someone for giving some thought to what they are actually going to do with the car, and doing something different than you choose to do makes the flamers just look ignorant. Just my humble opinion.
