Do the ATS Brembos clear 17s?
I giggled like a little kid on Christmas morning when I saw them back it out of the bay. I just turned 53, I've owned 30-odd cars over the years, and this is the very first set of custom wheels I've ever bought.Good looking wheel
It clears 17x9 terminator replicas. I checked that a couple days ago.Do the ATS Brembos clear 17s?
this is the beginning of a very expensive habit that there is no 12 step program for. I remember the same feeling back in 2003 when I put the black deep dish bullits on mine and it didn't help that the very first time I parked it with the new wheels a dude complimented the car for the first time in years. After nearly 10 years with them I decided to upgrade and found the ones I have now. I am afraid to know what I might justify spending on the next set.I giggled like a little kid on Christmas morning when I saw them back it out of the bay.

A little bit more to it....A larger rotor allows for more pad sweep area which increases braking performance. It also helps with heat dissipation. I still suggest going to cobra brakes if you haven’t already.
Ah that’s the word I was trying to think of, leverage. Much better explanation than mine.A little bit more to it....
A larger diameter rotor will allow more "leverage" on the wheel when braking.
If you look at brake rotors over the years, they have all gotten to a larger diameter. Even the base models.
And if you aren't careful, more unsprung weight.but lets remember that the same mass that helps the brakes, also means more rotational force is needed to get the wheels turning.
