Considering you are running 18 inch wheels (or thinking about it) tells me you are more interested in "GO"....

If it were my choice I'd go with the stoptechs or ap kit. I'd run the apex wheels and beat the snot out of them...

And yet, he's very interested in a set of TE37-SL in the for sale section!!
You're going to end up rebuilding your IND car again.

I think the advan TC-III that are just coming out will fit my 384's from what I've heard, are light and pretty cheap. Am considering these.

Eddy at APEX, must LOVE you!!
I though 100% of you last care was functional too, though pricey.
The wing and the splitter in particular seemd $$$$.

I have 18" Advan RS, but I don't think they clear Brembo 380mm, so take that into consideration.
