SSBC V8 Brakes (Would like to hear from those who got em)

Got some good prices on the SSBC calipers. Anyone care to share their first hand experience with these monsters? With the bigger tires and bumpers my stopping distance sucks. Just want to make sure they are worth the price.

No I only have 18's. As far as I know they need to be larger than a 19.

Yep you need 19.5 min to clear the 14.5" rotor caliper setup. So basically 20" rims.
