I'd love to do this, but I'm pretty certain that my winter wheels will prevent me from doing this. Will this fit over the OEM Sedan Sport wheels?

I doubt it will, but would be AWESOME if they did.

gizmo- do you have the front set only, or the front and backs? You should have 4 longer pins, 2 for each front caliper, and 4 shorter pins, 2 for each of the rear calipers (if you have the rears as well).

Why upgrade brakes before wheels?...

If you are interested in wheels that do clear, look at pics in my profile and let me know if you are interested...

I'm using Project U pads but it didn't come with shims. Do I need them and if so where can I get them for these pads. Should they have come with them?
