Re: Was there a stock alloy wheel?

https://weldcraftwheels.com/ Located in Livonia MI Never have used a widening service--I didn't follow through on these, as I could not justify the cost vs benefit compared with new wheels.

Re: Was there a stock alloy wheel?

This can have a couple of answers--the production Caprice WM/WN, built as a Holden Caprice, did have an alloy wheel as standard fitment. Several owners have installed the Holden production wheels over the years....as far as I know, the size was 18x8. Not sure of offset, but as mentioned, these wheel...

Re: Brembo front calipers using 345mm PPV rotors

I did apply new blue loctite as well and torqued to 30ft lbs and then some. The torque spec on these bolts is 30 lb-ft + (plus) 90 degrees additional bolt rotation.
