CarlyleRacing 15" Conversions

Just want to make sure everyone knows about these...

When you are ready to run 15" wheels on your 5th Gen we have everything you need!

If you have questions we can help you figure out what you need.

We stock the BMR conversion kits as well as our kits and with either kit if you use our Brake conversion you KEEP your parking brake and can switch back to your stock wheels whenever you want!

We keep a lot of the weld wheels in stock as well so we can make a complete package when you are ready!

15" conversions start at $1499 and are usually in stock or ready to ship within a few days!

Yes, the kit is designed to accept aftermarket coilovers that fit in the stock location.

Just curious how the braking power or whatever you want to call it would be affected by this conversion?

Ill give you the response my that was told to me by a friend that has the conversion..

If you are a road racer, it wouldnt work, but then again, you wouldnt want a 15" conversion if that were the case. You will not notice a difference in everyday driving. Perhaps if you were doing a 100-0 braking test you would be able to see a difference on paper but you wouldnt notice it in car.

These are a 4 piston caliper like the factory brake... I've never been able to tell a difference in my 5th Gen, 6th gen or C7 corvettes.. all have these brakes on them.

I have Mark's 15" conversion, car brakes great. I had V6 brakes before, and this kit brakes better than the V6 OE setup.

Does a 15" conversion effect the day to day handling on the street? Can I run lowering springs with this kit?
Doubt I will do any actual road racing, but I want to still be able to use my 20's and handle well on the streets..
