    I dig it. My guess would be that 20 x 11 front and 20 x 11.5 rear may be the most popular size for the new GT500. The ability to use a standard lug and not a "tuner" sized lug is important along with plenty of socket clearance. Hope you have plenty of caliper clearance too as the GT500 Brembo units are huge.

    Good luck with this one!

    Very yummy. I'd honestly have preferred a wheel like this to the OEM CF version. Can't wait to see it in different finishes.

    So did you have access to GT500 to ensure fitment? Those front brakes are HUGE... Then my next question is maybe....just maybe a 11.5 will fit up front now? Appears they left a little room. Just curious if you have thought about that. thanks

    Hey brother, i had the privilege to check one out in person, plus i already have the brake measurements of one. .
    I agree with you, my thoughts are to go with a 20x11.5 all around or a 20x11.5 front & 20x12 rear.
    That's only if its requested by the owners at the end of the day.

    Are you going to make some for the GT500 in the exact size/offset as the OEM ones? If so, how much in a dark bronze? I need a extra set of wheels for the track. I'm not taking the chance of stuffing the carbon ones in a gravel trap.
