RS Brakes?

Does any one know anything about them? Will they work with 16" wheels, and where would I get them? If they don't work with 16" wheels then how big do I need to fit them? What is their diameter? I tried to use the search engine but it said I couldn't use words with fewer than 3 letters, how should I search for RS information since it only HAS TWO!

the RS brakes are in the FRPP catalog, I believe they say you need 18s to fit them, but I'm not sure cuz I haven't read the catalog in a while

Yeah it is in the catalog but it requires to much to upgrade to them, imo, u need new body kit to acquire the proper whell room it says, and 17's for the cobra caliper and 18's for the rs caliper, so i would look around more if i were you, but it all up to you i think you should look around a little more before i shelled out money for this kit.

you don't necessarily need the body kit, but you do need different offset rims. my recommendation would be to go with the brembo front brake kit. brembo supplied the brakes for the RS so you're basically getting the same thing, but you only need 17s, but you must have a 42mm offset. AP racing also has a front and rear brake kit, 4 piston up front, 2 piston in the rear, requires 17 inch rims, 42mm offset
