    15" wheel brake calipers?

    When I race I change to the 15" Weld wheels but that required me to grind down my calipers to allow the wheels to fit without rubbing. I do still drive the car on the street from time to time but is there a good caliper replacement that actually is designed to work with 15" wheels and is not a drag only? I hate to buy Baer calipers to grind down a 1200 or more set of calipers. Thanks Ya'll!

    get some LT1 rear calipers. kinda going backwards, but you won't have to grind. then again, you have already ground the calipers down.

    Yea, I was sort of hoping for a better caliper than I currently have with stock but I am stopping and the ground ones will do. Thanks for your help though!
