We installed my 00 SSEi 17" rims on the Aurora today (looks decent, but its a work in progress) More importantly.
After following Petes dad and mom in their C5 Vette (50th
) I noticed that my new rims were really...I mean really hot.
Now, keep in mind, they disipated the heat quite well after 5 mins but that original temperature was staggering IMO. I have cross drilled and slotted rotors with Wagner ThermoStop pads. I wanted to ask the owners of the 00+ SSEi 17" chrome rims if they notice how hot the rims get.
I am concerned about the effect on the finish due to the heat. We checked all the offsets etc and its all OK. I get about 1/4" clearance from the caliper to the inside edge of the rim. Now these pads are brand new, so the depth of the ceramic pad its at its max. Any suggestions or comparitive experiences in this matter would be appreciated
btw the mods are lookin good, only need the custom centre caps to complete the deal
