found these 3000gt vr4 four piston calipers at the yard for $20 a caliper.  good thing is that they bolt up to stock celica caliper bracket.  the hole must be enlarged to do so.  i tested them being mounted and the braket pushes out the caliper so far out that it will not clear 17in wheels.  so i chopped off a portion of the bracket and redrilled and tapped new holes into it to mount the calipers.

Those VR-4 calipers should really stop that thing considering the weight difference between the two. 8) Nice job with getting them to fit!

:shoots:

You cannot run tyres with a different rolling radius front to back!
Youll force the VC to always slip, and it will overheat & fail.


The tires are wider, not taller.

215/40/17 and 235/40/17

And if he was FWD, why even stagger the wheels???

The 40 profile does not mean the tires are the same height. The profile is a ratio compared to the width. A 215/40 tire is shorter than a 235/40.

They are a different rolling diameter:

215/40/17 = 23.8" diameter
235/40/17 = 24.4" diameter

The second number is the ratio of the width to the sidewall height, not the sidewall height directly.

Staggered wheels on a FWD car is either for handling (if front is wider, road racing, etc) or looks (rear wider, for that RWD look).

yup, its staggered for looks.. nothing else. i have another set of wheels inline for it for track only events so these are mainly for everyday driving and to fill that fender gap in the rear.

It doesnt matter if you run staggered anyway since youre FWD and have no VC.
Its a good thing really, wish we could do it easier on AllTrac's :(

You have any idea how you might be shipping the lips that you make? I am still on the fence with what I am going to do.
