    Cressidas are so easy to find in junk yards though. Obviously your going to buy new rotors and pads, but its silly buying brand new hubs and calipers ($$$)

    It was mentioned before that this upgrade won't allow the stock 14" wheels to fit. I just wanted to update this thread and say that the stock wheels WILL fit, if you do some slight grinding to the calipers to give them clearance. I heard it's not a lot of material that has to be removed, so it doesn't affect safety. I've GOTTA try this someday!

    How much of a slight grinding do you have to shave off of the calipers to be able to make the 14x7 fit?? I know it scrapes the calipers a tiny bit. I want to run these on my MX73 because I got a few w/ good tires.

    The p-type rims will fit right onto some Cressidas because they didn't all come with the larger calipers.
