man, this shit is getting close! So I think I've decided. I'm going to get Carbotech XP10 pads. Their don't need to be warmed up and they are fade resistant till a whopping 1650* F! I realize that my small brakes will get hot and knowing that my pads aren't going to cause fade will be comforting. And surprisingly enough  for such a pad the dust they produce is 100% non corrosive. Also, I've already bought some new rotors and I'll have SS lines soon. I still need to figure out a solution for some wider tires though.

Opinions! Should I keep my 17's or trade them for lightweight Team Dynamics 15 x7'? I'm looking to fit wider tires but I can't do that with the current offset of my wheels. 15's have plenty of tire options in 205/50 but nothing else besides a few racing tires in 225/50. I'd ideally like to fit a 215/45/R17 but my rear is soo close to the strut.

15s and daily drive a set of R-S3s, always have loads of grip on tap.  Dont mind that they are half the treadwear of the V12s hahah.

If you want your current wheels still, spacers maybe?

Thats the rear, where I've got the space constraint. I've got 5mm spacers to even make them fit. I think a 10 or 15mm spacer could work but then I'd probably have to use extended studs.. ugh.
