LAST500

Recommended Posts

Had another set of wheels custom made for the GT500. 3-piece brushed aluminum with clear powder coat. Very aggressive fitment, but no rubbing.

 

fronts: 20 X 9.5, with Goodyear Eagle F1 285/35/20

rears: 20 X 11, with Goodyear Eagle F1 305/35/20

 

PM me, if you want a similar setup.

These look great! What springs are you running? Does Brembo make a rear caliper upgrade to fit our cars? Wheels that nice that show off the calipers and rotors that well need something nicer in the rear. It looks like you painted them which does improve the looks for sure. Congrats.

Way nicer than the stock wheels IMO.

I'm starting to think you get your money off trees to be able to do all of this without feeling guilty about it lol.

 

What brakes are you running? Did you have interior by kartoys done yet? I asked Toan if he had any pics but haven't got a response back yet.

Im not a bettin' man, but if I were going to take a stab at who made those I'd go with ADV1. I have no grudge against him, Jordan seems to be a straight shooter, and his wheel designs speak for themselves. Very nice looking wheels, whoever made em.

I'd be interested to know what kind of offset you are running. I'd like to get to similar dimensions for rubber, but not sure on that wheel design, or if I'm ready to pay the price for custom wheels. Looking at either widening my factory wheels or going to a CS1.

 

Looks good though, love the stance!

Using the OE 20" x 9.5" wheels as a reference point, there's only about another 1" - 1.5" of additional inboard clearance before you need to use spacers, remove shock covers, use different suspension components or start moving things around. Given the OE wheels' 45 offset, adding another 1.5" would result in a +/- 63mm offset, presuming the outer edge of the rim remains in the same position relative to the fender. Given how relatively narrow a tire 305s are on an 11" wheel, it'd be interesting to know if he needed to move the entire wheel farther outboard by reducing the offset.

The wheels were made by the company who makes ADV's wheels for them (they look very much like them). No ADV logo on them, so they were less money out of my pocket. I will try to find out the offset. It was not a slam dunk. Had to shave 3 mil of the front wheel pads and 2 mil off the rear wheel pads, to insure no fender rub. Fortunately the wheel hubs are Pretty thick so no issues there. There is about 2-3 mil clearance between my front caliper and the wheel spoke.

 

The leather interior is still a wait for. Hope fully done in a few weeks.

 

For the brakesI I am updating the rears to Shelby's rear brake kit for 2013, and also updating my front brakes with their 2013 front rotor. 2 weeks away. They will be cross drilled and slotted of course.

Will the slotting and drilling be something you intend to do yourself? Or do you have a vendor who does this for you?

Are you talking about the wilwood brake upgrade kit? If possible could you weigh the differences between the wilwood front and rear kit compared to the stock ones to see if there are any weight savings?

Does not look like 35 series tires

They are thin looking like 30's ones

You're sure they are not 285/30/20 & 305/30/20?

I intend to get the Shelby rotors that are being released for 2013 cars. They are supposed to be already drilled and slotted.

 

The tires are 35 series, not 30 series.

I must've missed the buzz about the new 15" Shelby rotors. Not a fan of drilling, especially on a rotor with so much mass, but I'd love a slotted set.

 

 

There are no 15 inch rotors? They are the same 14 inch willwoods the super snake used

SHELBY 15" rotors? When will it be available? Are they BAER? WILWOODS? Do you know?

OK for the tires...my bad. (I have Michelin SS in 285/35/20 and it is way thicker than your Goodyear - that's why I asked).

I think hes referring to the willwoods that came out on the super snake. If there was a 15 inch rotor Jer would have told us.

Would be pretty odd to go from 15" 6-piston Brembos to 14" Wilwoods for the sake of slotting and drilling... :headscratch:

Well perhaps the 14 inch 4 piston rear would make up the difference? I mean hey shelby did it with the super snake. They claim those brakes are better. Key word "claim". Still waiting on evidence

What I am told is that the Shelby rear brake kit matches the 2013 gt500, which is approx. 14 inches. Shelby is supposed to release a 15 in. cross drilled/slotted rotor that I can substitute for the front stock rotor.

 

They should ship within a couple of weeks, and I will provide an update.
