Managed to convince the minister of finance I needed new wheels (I really needed a cheer me up after my first week back on shift, night shift). I'm still on restricted duties, doc says another couple of months. Anyway, I got a set 19x8.5 and 19x9.5 mat black wheels.

Should be able to fit a 275/30/19 on the rear with a more regular 235/35/19 on the fronts but now I need to sort out something for the rear brakes cause the stock rusty ones just aren't going to cut the mustard. Really need to sort out the camber on the rear wheels too.

Cheers fellas.

Now I'm on the hunt for a rear brake upgrade. A big brake kit would look nice but I want to be able to run a 15" rim so I'm thinking what ever the brake upgrade for the Senators was on the rear will have to do. The rotors are easy to find but I'm not sure what callipers and brackets are required?

Maybe VT vented brakes?

if it was live you could of picked up some corvette C4 rear calipers reasonably cheap from the US and setup Group A rears, they def fit 15", same diameter just thicker and vented over stock.

I am mostly unfamiliar to what the options on IRS are.

The UPC kits off ebay work well on the VS
328mm front discs & 315mm rears. The kits use VE calipers on well designed brackets.

My mate has that kit but I'm wanting to have the ability to run a 15" rim on the rear so it limits my options unfortunately.

UPC has shut down as well so you’d have to find a second hand kit
