Pretechs and Galfer rotors seem to be the way to go. BST's are on my wish list too. I'm gonna sell a 99 Hayabusa. That should pay for this...Thanks guys

what tires brand have you mounted on the BST wheels

Hey Duke, how are you?

I use a Michelin Pilot 120/70 ZR18 on the front, and a Pirelli Diablo 240/40 ZR18 on the back. The exact same BST rims with the same Diablo rear tire was "proven" to an actual 272 MPH on the track by Bill Warner. Of course, he used a different hubs for his modified Busa.
