Talking Ever Wonder why they say you need 17 inch rims for Cobra brakes?

Could be cause they wouldn't fit inside anything smaller?

I haven't tried to panic stop it, and it has ABS so it would pulse it if I did, but it does stop really good, lol.

I don't plan on anything major performance wise for at least a while. Just some more appearance stuff I want to do, I have a Steeda Stainless Steel Radiator Cover on the way, I might go ahead and install my B&M transmission cooler while I am doing that, its been sitting here since like last summer waiting for me to decide to put it in, and it might be easy to do with the radiator cover off and out of the way, lol.

If you mean 4 legged ones, about 20 last time I tried to count, but several of them just had kittens, so who knows? I tried getting them fixed, but they multiply faster than I can get them fixed, they are my buddies, but they sure do multiply.
