i have only ever found one set of aftermarket 13" alloy rims that fit the gt brakes and that was after some grinding on the front calipers to get some clearance.

in general, you need at least 14" wheels on a gt. :wink:

Just do the swap to Honda calipers.

It's easy to do, they have bigger pistons, you can get better pads for them, and you can run 13's with no issue.
