With our first batch of 18" Sprint Forged wheels shipping out in the next few weeks, the time has come to add these beauties to our Showroom Gallery thread. We hope to see a lot more of these in the near future!

First off will be Alessandro's beautiful TT2 Championship winning S550 GT, sporting 18x11" ET52 all around with 315/30-18 tires and a full catalog of suspension upgrades.

Hmm, that looks pretty familiar...

@APEXRaceParts and @Cory - Question on fitment.....

In post #290 above, Alessandro's S550 GT is shown running 18x11" ET52 all around. I can't tell for sure by the pics, but those appear to be OEM GT350 brakes.

Would 18x11s fit on a GT350 and allow sufficient caliper clearance?

No, GT350 needs 19" wheels with stock brakes. AP Racing brake conversion allows for 18" wheels.

Those ain't AP Racing......

But then again, those rotors don't look like OEM GT350 stuff, either. Guessing Alessandro has a non-GT350 brake upgrade on his S550 GT.

My original question was based on thinking that he had upgraded his car with GT350 brakes - doesn't appear to be the case.

They certainly aren't, but I think you're correct that they're the GT PP Brembos rather than the GT350s, which I believe have a slightly smaller diameter rotor (380mm vs 394mm) and I'm not sure how different the calipers are. My understanding is there's no way to go 18" wheel on GT350 Brembos. I can say on mine, there certainly isn't half an inch to spare between my calipers and the barrels of any of my 19" wheels (Apex, Signature, or stock).
