I was OK with this at the time of purchase but now that I want bigger breaks I'm kind of in a struggle. So I guess what I'm asking is that without going to a big break kit what is the best or most reasonable break setup (including calipers and breaks if need be) that I can jam (doesn't have to be jammed it could be stock size i'm just trying to achieve good breaking power) in underneath these wheels that will give me sufficient breaking for a 250 whp car.

Procrastinator deluxe, these have been sitting on the shelf since the winter and before that I waited abut three years before ordering...
Dynapro radial not perfectly shimmed
How far out should I shim the caliper? In the picture I have not used any of the wafer shims, adding two makes the disk mostly flush with the pad material edge.

What is a decent replacement for the IMO stupid crimped 12-edge lock nuts for the caliper?
Finding a 12-edge 7/16" (11mm ring wrench was a snug fit) socket here isn't an easy task.
No I have not checked the thread, mot probably something imperial ...

For other procrastinators, this task was really easy with a $8 7/16" reamer, the tapered start was enough to not need to drill first.
