Wilwood Big brake kit

My 9000 Aero's brakes have always sucked. Stainless lines, expensive "quality" pads and rotors in different combos. Anyway, I need to be able to stop my green monster as it has a ton of power. Does anyone have Wilwood big brakes like in the link below. And will supper aero wheels fit on them. I have several sets of wheels that I can run but want to be able to fit on the good 'ole supers too. the rotors are 13" inch (330mm). I know its a long shot to ask this on the forum these days as many of the saab diehards dont frequent the site much anymore. Thanks

Viggen rotors are slightly over 12" and 16 inch wheels are a close fit. I would have to guess that with a 13" rotor 16" wheels probably wouldnt fit, but I can't say for sure. Wilwood brakes are very popular and they definitely build great components.

Very doubtful they would fit over 16's.

I was afraid of that. I haven't pulled the trigger on ordering the kit. Haven't seen the price this low since i've been digging around the net for bigger brakes. I swear I saw an older thread at one point claiming that the 16" wheels could be slightly ground to accommodate the bigger calipers. Not sure if this was for Wilwood or something different? Either way it would be great to see the big calipers behind super aeros. But, it would be even better to be able to stop a heavy 9000.

buy them and hold on to them until you can afford bigger wheels. how often do you see a deal like that?

That is more than likely the place I bought my big brake kit for my c900. Revolution brake. If it is they have a caliper and rotor profile template that you print and index to you existing wheels to check for clearance or lack there of. Contact them and ask.
That is a good price. If I recall I paid 1300 about 12 years ago for the floating hat version.
