    They did sell ENDLESS brand ones. Now they stock a different brand.

    The tires are Sailun and the picture shows the tires as being 175 something something. The only tires Sailun offers in a 175 are 13", 14" & 15". I'd say 15". Here's the link to the Sailun SH402 (which these have to be).

Well, I still had to swap the brake fluid out for Motul 600 RBF, but after that I was able to stop quicker than the sports cars I was running.
    How quickly are you saying you can boil the fluid after better pads? Is it something I should worry about? I usually run auto-x 70ish second passes but sometimes it's back-to-back runs. I've never experienced brake fade or any ill effects yet but I'm definitely on the brakes a lot during that time

    That blue one pictured is in the top 3 best looking mirages I've seen hands down

    Those drilled ones look nice
    Any additional info? Would be nice to know if the front/rear can be direct bolt-on to the hatch.

    PS: To anyone looking into brake upgrade, is never a good idea to upgrade the rear without upgrading the front as well, it would upset the brake balance.

    They run the exact same, just an inch bigger front and rear.
    You could just upgrade the rear. Front biased system anyway, and the rear is mainly just for the hand brake.
