    Thinking of putting on weld pro stars, 15" . Anyone have an idea on back spacing and if a 10 wide will fit out back. I want to do a 5" wide in front and 10" out back. Anyhelp would be great.

    You will be grinding the hell out of your rear calipers to fit them.

    Is it cause the rims are too small? Is there a aftermarket set that would work better? By the way I love the car and the video's I've seen of it.Would it be better to go 16's ?

    If you have the money...
    Bogarts are supposed to clear the calipers without grinding them.


    It took me 1.5 hours EACH caliper to get them to clear the ProStars.

    Well I like the look of the pro stars, was it worth the time of grinding ? unfortunately cash is a little tighter then i'd like right now. If I go this route , it wont hurt the calipers?

    Thanks for all the info by the way.

    For what those wheels do at the track, it was worth it for me.
    I was honestly worried about the calipers though...but I have had no problems with them.

    sweet, I will do it then. The pro stars made a big difference then at the track? I also want to do it cause I want to save the blue wheels before they get destroyed some how. Is there a big difference in weight ?

    Anyone here with Bogarts and can confirm no grinding needed? This is the only reason I havent bought Pro star's. Lots of deals going on with them.
