guys in the states use as a cheap drag package, they look not to bad either

dont think so darren on the harrop website it says the 381mm rotors need 19's as min and just looking on a commodores website where a guy with a ve has the 356mm rotors on rear (same as mine) he said there was about 3mm gap between rim and calliper with an 18" rim on. Ive hear people talking on different forums about some 18's coming out with some ok rubber for the strip. Although as stated this car is mainly for show and street i do still want to get it down the 1/4 mile an with a manual box and over 400rwkw I'm going to need some slicks and hopefully there is some solution without having to take brakes on and off
