ST205 Front Brakes

Suspension and other discussion

Has anyone looked into what needs to be done to powder coat a caliper? For some reason baking calipers @ 400 degrees sounds bad to me.

I think painting would be better over PC.

What temp do your calipers get under some hard braking? will powder coat hold up?

Yep, It was yesterday. I'm hoping you work as fast as you talk. :)

I'll be interested to see how they hold up to your "track day". 8)

I would think so. I had my exhaust manifold heat shield PCed and it held up to the temps of the turbo.

I've PCed many a caliper. No ill effects. No problems.

No. 16" is the smallest which still fits over ST205 brakes, like the stock ST205 wheels.

And to clarify, a lot of 16" wheels don't fit. You have to have a good wheel.

SSR Comp/Type-C's barely clear. 7th Gen rims don't. 16x8 +38 Enkei RP01's do Be careful what you buy if you're shooting for 16's

Calipers are so close they almost fit. Almost too close for a bracket...
