The pics in the thread on Brembos I referenced are not of my car. I am having the tires mounted and balanced this weekend. I'll probably put them on briefly to check for fit sometime next week and take pics.

Not all BBKs use 380mm rotors, which is a factor. Caliper geometry is obviously also a factor.
yeah, i was reading that and it looks like his offset is a little bit different from yours

Bob's wheels are 18x9.5" ET30 front and 18x10.5" ET25 rear and yours are 18x9.5 et28 and 18x10.5 et30 right ?

Your front and his rear would be a great set i think ...

Yeah, my rears are et30. I might use 5mm spacers. We'll see...

I had the tires mounted today. Rear wheels weigh 44.5lbs, fronts 43lbs according to my digital bathroom scale. I'll test them for fit within the next couple of weeks.

Are you going for the other set TC has for sale?

Yeah, they're sweet indeed...Can't wait!

Total came to $3070 with tires, and installation and shipping costs. Not bad IMO.
