    All the way down? Post a pic if you can. I had to grind my calipers down to almost thin air for my Prostars to fit, I doubt you took yours down as much as I did.

    A 28 puts a bigger patch of tire on the ground which yields better 60' times. Most of the really fast guys I know run 28s.

    I had to do lots and lots of grinding to my calipers and the brackets. Took me about 4 hours of grinding to get them to clear, you have to take off a lot.

    I installed 15" Bogart D10's on our car for the track. Although they cleared the stock calipers, I did grind the ribs down a bit for some added insurance:
