Front skinnies

Anyone put front skinnies on their 5.0? And what wheel/tire if there is any that fits over your stock brakes without having to downgrade to a smaller front brake? I recently upgraded to 20 inch S197 rims and i believe it is making my car more sluggish than my stock 19s

17's from racestar/weld will fit perfect. And M&h make tires. The 17x4 are least 25-30lbs lighter per wheel then your 20"rims.

This is my car with my 15's all around. I run 2010 brakes. Also weld has 17's that clear brembo's also.

Also removing front swap bar will help.

So if I buy the 17x4 they will fit over my stock 2011 brakes? Non brembo

Yes. If get racestars get the direct drill. Lots better. Give teambeefcake.com (Terry Reeves) a call. He will get you taken care off. I ordered mine from him late Tuesday and had them Thursday morning. No extra shipping for the over night either.
