FWIW Ive never heard of a 15 not clearing any of the available brake systems for 510s. There are a few 14s that have issues with some of the larger BBKs, and most 13s wont even clear ZX brakes, but you should be good with any 15. Im personally waiting on tires and powdercoat before I throw my 15s on my 510. I like the look of your flares, but its too much work to fit them on mine since its a 4dr.


good to know, yeah im pretty sure the ArizonaZcar website mentioned they would clear 15's. I think the 16's with the 245-45's are just too big. Car sits up way to high for my taste and my turning radius is suffering as well. The only thing im worried about is tire availability with 15's. Tire availability isnt great with 16's either.
