    I will be upgrading to C5 brakes when I do my engine swap (new k-member, a-arms, etc.). The smallest wheel you can run with those is a 17". There are several kits out there, I got mine off of eBay. The kit comes with brackets to bolt your stock calipers to, so they're half an inch further out. that way you can use te C5 rotors. All in all, I spent about $250 on the swap ($150 for the brackets/bolts and $100 for two C5 rotors).

    People also do the CTS-V Brembo brake swap. I think you need 18" wheels for those to fit.

    thanks Cutlass,i thought about that too(rim size) but this might get done somewhere along the line,maybe the CTS V Brembos would be a little reasonable when i finally swap brakes & rotors,for now my cross driled rotors will work
