I have a very slightly used (1800 miles) SPT Exhaust, sedan version, for sale right now if anyone is interested. I already have my stock exhaust and I just put it back on the car last week. Unfortunately since I paid $1100 for the SPT Exhaust and it was only used for two months, I'm not going to let it go for $280 but I will take significantly less than the asking price in my current for sale thread. PM me if you are interested. Thanks.

oh i see, thanks for the reply, do you think 20mm (if they make that size?) would be inside the fender enough so that i wont rub if i hit a bump?

I absolutely hate the look of ugly silver cast iron calipers, so I did something about it. They are C&C'd powder coated aluminum (covers) which just happen to act as a heatsink and cut back on brake dust.

They're not for everyone, and I get that... but I don't give a f**k what others think.

Interesting... I don't imagine tallmans covers would really cause heat build up... I doubt that cheap plastic would with in the movie... The wheel dust disks are probably a similar no-no by the mustang medics opinion.

It's hit or miss. I ran 25mm spacers with stock wheels and stock suspension for a while. I never rubbed. The guy I sold them to would run occasionally. I've heard reports both ways from people online. Camber settings (within spec) could be enough to cause issues.

Fronts don't rub at all. Rears rub @ that ride height (lowered on feal CO's), so for now I'm lowered @ 20mm a tad higher, until I get around to rolling them. No rubbing on stock suspension.

They don't look "bad" per say, they actually look like they are decently made, hell they look better than the plastic Brembo covers people buy off of ebay. I would be more concerned about heat soak on the brakes and what happens when/if one comes loose and rattles around between the wheel and hub. How are they attached? Those suckers were pricey too weren't they?

On this website those things are $200 for plain covers, another $140 for custom logo, and another $20 for custom coloring on the graphic. For $360 bills you can buy a solid performance part or an hour and a half on the dyno, but that's just my opinion.
