    Pulled out of storage and check everything tomorrow. I do have a spoiler for the front to put on.

    I finally washed the grime off too.

    Also, looks like my curb rash wheel will make for a good spare after I get a pull off tire for it. Old spare and wheels won't work with the new brakes, of course.

    If my memory serves me right, the calipers should work with the pp wheels with a 6mm spacer. The will be uncomfortably close. Best to double up that spacer.

    That's what I was telling you! Those calipers are massive even compared to the S197 Brembo calipers, it's ridiculous.

    A full-size spare DOES fit, but the trunk floor mat might not necessarily sit as flush as it once did.
    At least that was the (only) issue when I briefly ran one of my stock 19x9 Brembo-style wheels with a 255/40/19 stock-size tire on it:
    The trunk mat sat about an inch higher in the middle, so the sides looked a little "wonky" not reaching all the way to the walls of the trunk.
    But it sure was nice to know that I had a full-size spare in the trunk, with a jack, an air pump, and a plug kit if needed.

    Hmm that is good to know. One of my wheels got nasty curb rash on it last year and I've been thinking about replacing it, and I wouldn't mind throwing a used tire on the old wheel and keep it as a spare. Especially since the 17" donut won't fit over the Brembos in front.

    Well, that size is identical height to the 19" size I had in there, so ..... :)

    Ordered new front brake rotors (StopTech slotted) and front brake pads (Hawk HPS 5.0)
    Also ordered some more VHT caliper paint.
    The front calipers will soon match the sexy-ass rear caliper covers I just installed :)
