No replies? Looks great. Looks like there is room for muchhhh bigger rotors no? What is the limiting factor, lack of a larger caliper + carrier to take advantage of a larger diameter rotor?

Thanks. Stock, that's a 20" wheel, and they have 22" replicas. Wilwood has larger rotors/caliper kits available. Budget goes but so far across 5 cars though...

Nice. I think it'd look even better if you painted the calipers.

Actually might get them powdercoated and put either an "Aero" or Griffen graphic on them.

The wheels make the brakes look super tiny that's all, otherwise it looks great.. X2 on the powder paging or Saab logos

Yeah, I know. That's completely factory, size-wise. And they do a fantastic job stopping the car. But you're right, they look way undersized.
