Well it took a shit load of grinding but I finally got them on and the calipers still look plenty strong. Springs still need to settle a bit and Ill be picking up some drag shocks and brakes in the near future to finish it off.
What do you think?

looks good, makes me want to rethink getting rid of the dragites...

Well these are a tons lighter than my prostar/MT DRs set up so I assume there are some gains to be had by switching besides looks. Also you reduce the weight of the rear caliper too..lol
Tom I like the lettering also! It stays!!!

I just put the same fronts on my car but I have jegs rears with the lettering removed LOL. What kind of tire pressure you run on the fronts?

On a side note what rear brakes are you running AC? These wheels fit very well with LT1 style rear brakes (atleast the 15x10 4.5 bs) which is what I switched to for ease of fitting...

Love the fronts, but cant get into the thin spoked rear look. Like prostar rears better.

Looks nice on all the f-bodies with them. My speed shop put a set of them on a late '70s Corvette and I like them. bummer about the company belly up though.
