Faeflora runs DR's with out flares. So will I sometime this year.

EDIT: I once again did not read enough. Sorry.

EDIT 2: I am starting to like the K7 more and more.

unless they are the same as stock brakes i highly doubt it.

mine were very close with the stock sport brakes. Unless the wilwood have a different banjo bolt location.

here is the toyo proxies 4 205/50/15 mounted on the 15x9... doesnt look that stretched.

hate all you want i am happy with the outcome.

It's usually just a sticker. Should come off with ease.

So far no one has published the weight of wheels: 15x7 and 15x8.
And will they allow the big brake kits?

So far you have not searched for the wheel weight information on-line. It is out there.
