    Found a guy selling 2010 gt500 brembo calipers (4 piston) for $325 plus shipping. Is this a decent deal? They have less than 50 miles and look brand new

    Did they post pics?
    Lots of copies out there that people are passing off as OEM Brembos.

    Good news is that the copies are of decent quality

    Should I ask for the pic of the back of the caliper to see if they list fomoco or whatever it says? Lol

    I have seen them as cheap as $50 each from Amazon no core charge and as much as $300 each from Ford. I have a friend in the parts industry say they all come from the same place but by law, they put different names on them. This law goes back the Rockefellers.

    Those don't have the tell tale casting ear on the front. The top view of the back looks like the s550 calipers though. I'd ask for a pic of the back

    I have Amazon copies from Callahan for at $100 each no core charge and they work great. The Brembo stickers were rather cheap. I got the heat resistant ones. I decided to leave them unpainted.

    Those look exactly like the O'Rielly version. If so, you can pick them up for ~$85 ea. Huge difference in stopping power. All I did was add a set of stock GT500 rotors, Hawk pads, braided steel brake lines, hub centric spacers, extended thread lugs and Brembo stickers. All together I think I have around $400 - 450 invested? Well worth it. Have been very pleased with their performance and reliability. Been on for about year now. No issues to date though I don't really go anywhere anymore save quick trips to grocery stores for supplies. The only thing I'd recommend is adding steel braided brake lines front & rear vs rubber.

    That was the original plan. I seen those on marketplace and thought I could pick them up for a steal like I did my wheels lol. You just get your decal on eBay? I was going to get the orielly calipers with Shelby eBay decals. Debating having mine powder coated a different color but can’t make up my mind.

    I think the 14” setup is good for 18”+ wheels, but I’m not for certain.

    Some 18” wheels. Not all. I have Touren TR76 18x8 and they clear with 2mm space.

    They’re fantastic breaks they’ll pop your eyeballs out. Generally need 18 inch wheels and I don’t believe bullets will work. They’re pretty fat calipers.

    Thanks for information, looking for something to fit 17” rims. I had widen on rear to 10” wide, stock width on fronts. Trying to keep stock stealth look for 700 HP 2007 GT.
