Brake questions?

I'm thinking of picking up slotted and dimpled 2012 gt rotors from this company I found


Zinc Plating Process, Our Performance Rotors have a corrosion protection finish that is electro-statically applied. The Zinc Coating Process is a very extensive hand applied operation that is NOT sprayed on like inferior coaters. Each brake rotor is immersed in different solution tanks in the coating process. The final result is a thick protective coating that will help prevent rusting and give you a great custom look. When you receive your Rotors they will be completely Black or Silver. As soon as you install them and start braking, the friction from the pads will wipe the zinc from the pad surface turning it Silver leaving the holes, slots and the rest of the Rotor Zinc coated in the color you selected. The Zinc coating that is removed from the Pad surface quickly dissipates and will not gum up the pad surface or affect the braking performance in any way

The 2012 brakes are an inch or so bigger than ours. So I was going to pick these up then get new brackets from the ford house do they can bolt up... However I have two questions:

1.) Is there a company who makes Oem sized performance look a like calipers?
(want my calipers to mimic something like this

2.) And will my OEM 18" polished bullets clear bigger rotors?

I will get the real big brake upgrade it as some point... But for now I wanted to do something like this...

Re: Brake questions?

waste of money for your DD, plus your wheels will not clear the calipers. Is your interest better brake performance, or do you just want looks?
