Brembo rims

I have the opportunity to purchase some wheel take-offs of from a 2014 Brembo package GT. I don't have the Brembo brakes on my car so will these rims/tires look good on my car? I have the standard GT wheel now and my thought is that the rotors and calipers might look too small through the more open wheel. Can somebody post pics of the Brembo rim on a standard GT? Or should I just look for aftermarket wheels? Thanks

Looks like I found a pic just below my post. These rims look good, but there is a lot of space between the wheel opening and the tire. Hmmmmm

Here is a pic of my non-Brembo GT with Brembo wheels.

I found a picture of your car and posted a link to it in response to my original post, but because I'm new, moderators needed to review the link before allowing the post. I guess they haven't reviewed it yet. Do the rotors appear small with this setup? I'm thinking of painting the calipers also. Thanks for the pic.

To me the rotors do not appear too small, the only thing I don't like is the color of the calipers. You mentioned that you were going to paint them anyways, so you should be fine. I'm thinking of painting mine also, I just haven't decided what color yet. Good luck with the purchase, I'm sure you're going to love the Brembo wheels.

I absolutley love the Brembo wheels. Honestly if I ever do the Vintage Venom upgrade that allows me to use the GT500 brakes and S197 wheels on my 98 I will give a long hard look at these rims. Not sure why they aren't more popular. They are not nearly as played out as the AMR style rims I'm seeing on EVERY DAMN CAR that comes out these days.
